“TRANSFORMING” is 3D Printed Nail stopmotion animation.
Created by Planner/Director Mizuki Kawano and Producer Yuna Takayama from Taiyokikaku Co., Ltd.
The company's computer graphics artists produced the animation data based on the designs created by the Manicurist, Hatsuki Furutani.
Then the data was printed into three-dimensional artificial nails by full color 3D printer, “ProJet 660 Pro”.
Total of 521 nails were produced, and the thinnest part of the nails were only 0.56mm.
We attached and replaced the nails to the actual human hand, and filmed frame by frame.
This stop motion animation was created without using any computer graphics.
