I have just posted the 1st part of a huge project. It is basically a a shot for shot remake of STAR WARS that I made to showcases my custom figures and dioramas.
It basically uses some stop motion, simple puppeteering, and my first attempt at "special" effects (which was whatever the editing software came with)
I only used 3 3/4" and smaller figures to keep it from getting out of control with 12", busts, statues, and lifesize props.
I made something like this when I was a kid, and again 10 years ago after I saw Alex Newborn's "Whoever dies with the most toys wins" at his house.
I plan on releasing new parts every couple of weeks.
I used a simple Canon Digic DV camera and Pinnacle Studio for editing.
