Cut Copy have released the video for We Are Explorers, which is lifted from the band’s new album, ‘Free Your Mind‘. They enlisted avant-garde creators Masa Kawamura, Aramique & Qanta Shimizu who have been lauded globally as innovators.

The video features 3D-printed characters exploring the streets of Los Angeles. Every frame has been created with stop-motion photography. Kawamura & Aramique explain: “We wanted it to be tactile, to feel like a real adventure and felt we could accomplish this by creating a tangible character that we would shoot outside on location in every place.” Watch the video for We Are Explorers via YouTube below.

BitTorrent is providing access to the 3-D files so fans the opportunity to live their own We Are Explorers adventure story. They can download the bundle, and unlock the film, a frame-by-frame guide to stop-motion shooting, and copies of the 3-D print files for each character in the film. As Kawamura & Aramique elaborate, “Our goal with BitTorrent is to hand everything over to the public…our storyboards, stop-motion technical plans, 3-D files for every figurine, and see what they do with it. Even if people just print the 8 figurines that make up the running sequence there’s so much they can do and so many places the story can go.”
