Hey Pressto / DBLG & Animade
WINNER / SHORT FORM > EXPERIMENTAL
Any short form project exploring novel aesthetics, production methodologies and/or technologies
Three arms, two hairy chests and a bum crack. What better way to celebrate our 10th anniversary than with a personal project.
We teamed up with our friends at Animade to combine our skills in 3D printing, stop motion and digital animation. Using actors’ skin as a canvas, this innovative passion project is truly one of a kind.
Each frame of the animation was modelled in 3d then 3d printed before painstakingly pressing each frame into different parts of the our actors bodies.
It took four months of R&D to get the right kind of stamp. Once we were happy with the quality of the print, we enrolled our friend, DOP stop motion wizard Malcolm Hadley who was fresh off Wes Anderson’s latest feature Isle of Dogs.
