A director created incredible stop motion miniature chase scenes using Hot-Wheels toy cars.
Paul Greer spent six months creating his first stop motion film in 2013.
The director and producer, from Richmond, London, said: “I was walking through a Waitrose and I saw some toy cars so I thought, I’ve got to do something with it.”
To create his first film, Paul built a custom camera rig and used an iPhone to record the scenes.
He enlisted the help of four friends and spent up to six hours a day working on the project.
The process proved exhausting and only produced about five to 10 seconds of footage for a day’s work.
But six months and more than 1,000 hours of work later, “Nitro Warriors” was born.

The film proved to be a huge success.
French video sharing technology platform DailyMotion contacted Paul to create a sequel.
Soon after, Hot Wheels approached him and asked him to create an advertisement for their toys.
Paul has now produced over 10 films and founded a stop motion studio called Vanguard Pictures.
He said: “I’m taking breaks from my normal career to work on this and I’m working on it exclusively.
“It’s so comprehensive that you need to fully commit to it.
“I still don’t know why I did it. It’s something I’ve fallen into. It was mainly to have a little fun and see how it would work.
“The most overwhelming was when Hot-Wheels came and said, ‘We have a lot of money and we want you to promote the whole toy line.’
“I had to create and design the sets and convince all the bigwigs at Mattel.
“I am the most important person in this field now. There are others in stop motion, but I am the most prominent person in this position.
“For me, the biggest reward is that there are people out there who enjoy what I make.”
