The Australian singer Dan Sultan was touring and hadn’t time for a proper video shoot for his newest single – so his head was 3D scanned and reproduced using 3D printers.
The team from Dropbear, a film and animations studio from Melbourne, used the digital files from the 3D scan to animate the singers motions while singing. These were than 3D printed with over 60 pieces. These can be combined to create different movements.
The 3D prints were photographed over 2700 times to create the smooth motions in the video. These were than pimped with some computer animations. The complete process took over two month.
The amazing result can be seen here:
