kitachi video, stop-motion, by Kijek/Adamski
Preorder Tatoo book by Scene360

Directors Kijek/Adamski used 2000 PVC silhouette cutouts to make this incredibly creative music video. Applying the stop-motion technique, the filmmakers had a painstaking task of aligning all shapes, which you can see in the making-of at the bottom of post. This project serves to promote Japanese musician Shugo Tokumaru’s new song titled, “Katachi” (meaning shape).
