2. Shooting Stop-Motion Models

Stop-motion animation is the process of filming models one frame at a time, with constant adjustments to the model being made for each frame to create the illusion of motion when the film is played at normal speed.

For the prototype, Berg created moving moving parts that included small squared-off pistons in the upper legs, which made the AT-ATs appear more mechanically operational.
