3D-printed stop-motion film
with 200+ open-source figurines.

“We Are Explorers” is a 3D-printed stop-motion music video, created in collaboration with Cut Copy and BitTorrent. It follows the story of 60mm-tall man and woman running through the streets of Los Angeles collecting discarded objects to build a raft to escape the city. In order to tell this story, we 3D printed the characters as tiny figurines and filmed them in real world settings. When we released the film we also released every 3D file as an open-source BitTorrent Bundle, ready for the public to 3D print and freely reimagine the story.
