Feast In A Fallen City

feastinafallencitybanner Stop-motion film making is a demanding art form. From the creation of “physical” sets and characters to the painstaking capture of movement, every scene demands attention to detail. The “Feast In A Fallen City” takes the time honored tradition of stop-motion film-making and gives it a jolt of modern technology. Using ZBrush and 3D printing technology to realize his designs, director Aron Bothman, a student at the California Institute of the Arts, took full advantage of everybody’s favorite “digital clay” while bringing his tale to life. Be sure to watch the “making of video” for a behind the scenes look at how it all came together. http://vimeo.com/90046679 http://vimeo.com/85216181 http://3dprintingindustry.com/2014/05/22/3d-printing-student-film-aron-bothman/

The team of Masters and Munn lay the foundation for what could invariably be the shape of things to come in the world of traditional sculpture. Using ZBrush to design the feathers for this divine creature takes a progressive approach at propelling classical figurative art into the digital age.  Each feather is sculpted using ZBrush and brought to life by way of 3D printing. Once the feathers are printed, a copper plating process is incorporated. We’ll take one! Be sure to see more cutting edge sculptural works from this dynamic duo by visiting their website.
