London-based creative agency DBLG shows the way with “Bears on Stairs,” a short clip that combines a 3-D printed hero with traditional stop-motion animation to charming effect. The ursine epic has a 2-second run time and took four weeks to complete, making it about as efficient as your average Michael Bay production, by my rough calculations. The lumbering action took 50 printed models in all.
It’s a cute little project, until you realize that we’ve doomed this poor beast to climb up a recycled plastic escalator in Sisyphean perpetuity, at which point it starts to seem slightly less cheerful. The bear probably thought he was going to be in Fantastic Mr. Fox 2.
