Go Behind the Scene
Manicurist Hatsuki Furutani worked with a large team with director Mizuki Kawano and Producer Yuna Takayama to create this stop-motion animation on nails. “We printed three-dimensional artificial nails by importing the animation data into the “ProJet 660 Pro” full color 3D printer.
A total of 521 nails were produced by the printer, the thinnest parts measuring only 0.56mm,” says the team. “We attached and replaced the nails to an actual human hand, and filmed frame by frame.”
