Hi everyone.

I'm not a very active member on this forum, but I'm in need of some help and/or backdrops.

I don't really make live-action films I'm more interested in Stop-Motion-Animation.

I'm making a short (5 minute) lego Star Wars flick with my friend and in one scene some snow-speeders fly around in the forests of Yavin IV (don't ask me why, it's too complicated.)

I've only found one picture of the Yavin IV forests and with Vegas 4 (editing software) I can pan around it and make it move, BUT:

I wondered if anyone knew where I could get some (preferably high quality) pictures of Yavin IV from the web, or if you could possible create some for me.

If all else fails, I take some pictures from the woods near me, but that's only if worst come to the worst.

Geez! My post is already this long!

Can anyone help?

If he wants to make a Brick Fanfilm, then let him. It looks fun and that is what he wants to do.

Now, what is the point of this forum if you are going to tell him something so general. Why don't you just ask him to use the internet to find some. The best I found on Google was this. If you want it to be sort of fake looking, that is perfect, just Photoshop out the tower thing. Otherwise, I would just use forest stock photography. NOTE: ROTJ Yavin scenes were shot, I believe, in California's Redwood Forests. There is plenty of great stock photos all over the web. If you want them toony looking, apply some filters in PS or post them here and I am sure people will do you a favor and toon it up.

Here's one i made in the trial version of Vue Studio Pro 5.



It can't be larger than 640x480 due to the trial limitations.
