Star Wars London

SW death star-trench-run-recreated-in-3d-artwork-in-london If you recently walked under London's Southwark Bridge, you would have seen the 15 metre long immersive 3D artwork created  to mark the UK launch of the Rise Against the Empire Play Set on 2nd October 2015, complete with sounds effects of ships, laser fire and droids. It was only available for one day only unfortunately. Very impressive. In this video you can watch how the artwork was actually made.
