Last fall, we came across Matthew Callahan’s fantastic series of images, Galactic Warfighters, in which he inserts Star Wars figures into realistic combat photography. Now, a short film delves into his process.

The film, produced by Joseph DiGIrolamo, interviews Callahan and follows how he goes about setting up his incredible images. It’s a really interesting look at how you take scaled action figures and recreate some of the more iconic images from the Iraq / Afghanistan war.
