Friday Favourites

3D printing and stop motion animation. Two things we like a lot at DB. So when we heard about animator Gilles-Alexander Deschaud’s latest project, we were very excited. Over the course of 2 years, Deschaud has created the world’s first 3D printed film, Chase Me. Here comes the trailer…

Made up of 2,500 individually 3D-printed pieces, Chase Me is the story of a ukelele-playing girl whose shadow creates a monster that chases her through a forest.

You can watch the beautiful ‘making of’ film below, and find out more on the film’s website.

Step Inside Abbey Road

Ever tried (and failed) to sneak a peak around the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London? Well now you can with Inside Abbey Road, a collaboration between the studios and Google.

Inside Abbey Road

Presented as a rich and immersive interactive documentary, the website allows you to take a virtual tour of the world famous recording and mastering studios, and lose yourself in its eclectic musical history. There’s lots of extra information, audio tours, video and photo galleries to keep you entertained, and there’s even a virtual J37 four-track recorder (used to record Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band) to play with.

If you’re a music fan then this site is a must-visit.

Tiny art

What is it that makes really small crafted objects so fascinating? This week we’ve been charmed by the work of micro artist Hasan Kale, who paints tiny intricate pieces of art onto surprising everyday objects.

And if you’re in NYC over the next month and you’re a fan of tiny art, then make sure you stop by the “Feel Big Make Small” exhibition at the apexart gallery. The exhibition features a lovely collection of dioramas, including Alice Bartlett’s “nail art”, Matthew Albanese’s stunning miniature caves, and Citizen Brick’s LEGO homage to Breaking Bad.
