Katachi by Shungo Tokumaru, A Stop Motion Music Video Using PVC

The music video for the song “Katachi” by Japanese singer-songwriter Shungo Tokumarui is a stunning stop motion animated film that creatively uses thousands of cut plates of PVC. More information on the process can be found at Motiongrapher.

Directors Kijek/Adamski created this lovely, lighthearted video using approximately 2,000 silhouettes extracted from PVC plates using a computer-controlled cutter. I love the balance between popping 1-frame imagery and the building sculptures, especially the repeating hand clapping motif and the way simple polygons form into a sort of dimensional waveform.
