Dan Sultan and Melbourne’s Dropbear Digital collaborated on an animated video for his new single, “Magnetic”, featuring a 3D printed bust of the singer
3D printing isn’t just for engineers and architect. It’s also working it’s way into modern art. Many artists are finding new and creative ways to use the new technology. Australian’s Dan Sultan is no different.
For his new single, “Magnetic”, Sultan teamed up with Dropbear Digital to produce a stunning stop-motion animated music video. Because of scheduling conflicts the alt-rock singer wasn’t available to shoot the video. Jonathon Chong, the video’s director came up with the idea of using digital scans of Sultan’s head to print 3D replicas and animate those instead.
After two months of work, the result is an electrifying 3:46 second video that uses 2,700 still images to bring intricately woven plastic extrusions to life.
Jonathon Chong printed over sixty 3D printed pieces to re-produce Dan Sultan’s bust, with facial expressions and all. Visual effects were then added to the animation, and voila!
Dan Sultan is currently on tour in Australia, and is expected to release a new record sometime in 2017.
