Production process

In the production of this stop-motion animation, almost all the characters and actions were acted and shot by our team. After that, we edited these large amounts of materials with photoshop and illustrator to leave the outlines of the characters.


These characters were printed by laser-cut and became sheets of human figures. Then we shot them frame by frame as an animation.
