Chase Me: The entirely 3D printed animated short

ChaseMe

From the characters to the set, all elements from Filmmaker Gilles-Alexandre Deschaud’s Animated film, Chase Me were printed using a 3d printer. Deschaud spent two years 3D printing 2,500 parts using the Formlabs’ Form 1+ SLA 3D Printer.

Chase Me combines the magic of film with the wonder of 3D printing, every detail forming a beautiful representation of a magical world. This short film follows a ukelele-playing girl who is chased through a dark forest by the monster that emerges from her own shadow.

This creative stop animation project first began as a CG-animated storyboard, which was then 3D printed — frame by frame. Each second of the film is made up of 15 frames. 3D printing brings to animation, especially stop-motion, the freedom to edit on the computer, before committing to the time intensive process of frame by frame animation.

CRAZY REAL DIORAMAS BY MATHIEU SCHMITT

SCHMITT_Mathieu_Glitched1_2013

It’s like a scene from every ‘weird things happen to main characters on conveniently deserted suburban neighborhoods’ movie I’ve ever seen. Only this is not a movie set, it’s a diorama where miniature street lamps illuminate incredibly real looking, eerie streets that lead to nowhere other than the edge of the box they’re trapped in.

Glitched is a series of tiny worlds of imperfection, where everything is not as it seems. Artist, Mathieu Schmitt prints his models using 3D files that have been corrupted. In Glitched #1 – Surburban House, “The house is a 3D print of a 3D file having been corrupted. The original file of a classic suburban house has been forced to go through several stages of interpretation of the data, passing through various voluntarily inappropriate software, causing data corruption.”

Check out the scenes for yourself and see what you can uncover.
