A 3D printer, UV filaments and 200 figurines come together on the streets of Los Angeles for a music video like no other.
Recently director Kawamura and his team including Qanta Shimizu and Aramique Krauthamer, teamed up with Australian dance-rock group Cut Copy to create a music video for the group’s latest single “We Are Explorers”. For the music video, PARTY NY created 200 figurines using a 3D printer and UV filaments. Throughout the stop-motion animated music video, the glow-in-the-dark figurines explore the streets of Los Angeles at night, picking up discarded objects along the way.
Furthermore, Kawamura and his team decided to make the piece an open-sourced, downloadable project through BitTorrent, in which viewers are able to download the 3D data and re-create the video as they wish.
