We’re studio Job, Joris & Marieke. Usually we make music videos and short animation films, like our Oscar nominated short A Single Life (2015). Recently we made a 3D printed campaign for the music project HAPPY CAMPER. Happy Camper is a Dutch pop music project with a different singer for each song.
For the new songs of Happy Camper we created a series of mesmerizing loops, in which a character is doing a specific action in each loop. The inspiration for these loops arised from the 3d printing proces. Often support structures are used to print objects with overhanging parts. This means an object is supported by branch-like structures that are meant to be removed later on.
In the loops we created we did not remove the the support structures from the characters. We kept them to symbolize the crutches and limitations that impede our daily lives… or the much-needed boost that helps us cope and persevere, a theme that repeatedly occurs in the new Happy Camper songs.
For the next two months, the special stop motion animation and featured 3D prints are exhibited in the front room of Amsterdam’s legendary pop venue Paradiso.
