RICHMOND, Va. -- Not so long ago in an office in down, downtown Richmond... a group of super talented editors, animators and designers created an incredible video that put Richmond in the middle of the battle between the Light and Dark side of the Force. The team at Mad Box Post created the video which puts All Terrain Armored Transports (AT-ATs) marching along the James River, firing blasts at Rebel ships including the Millennium Falcon.

"The video has been huge for us," Mad Box Post owner Macy West said about the video which spread across Richmond social media channels Wednesday. "It seems to be taking off. It's all about the right timing. People seem more interested in this than the commercials we produce."

Macy and her husband Matt said the Mad Box team used drone footage they had in house and added Star Wars graphics they built on computers. Matt and Macy said their team worked for about a month to get the video out just before the theatrical release of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

She said Gordon Whiteway and Trey Trumble provided the drone footage and Andrew Uvarov at Red Amp Audio mixed the sound design.
