"In a room that looks like our studio, a character emerges from a piece of paper and runs over a table like a madman. He breaks a few things on the table and eventually he jumps into a preserving jar on a shelf. No one knows why he's in such a rush. All we know is that he doesn't want to be recognized…"

This is a recent CGI adventure film created by Job, Joris, and Marieke of WENT&NAVARRO studio in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Check out the video below:

"We made this short loop as part of a 3D printed installation." explained the designers. The installation, named 'FREEZE! an adventure in 100 frames' was made for the animation exhibition MOVE ON…! in Kunsthal KAdE in the Netherlands which runs until May 10th.

"We 3D printed this entire sequence, frame by frame." The designers said. Totally 100 frames were printed out on a 3D printer.

"The whole animation is made in CGI, and we used a 3D printer to print each frame. The result is a weird string of characters in different poses. This explains the principles of animation beautifully, without a single bit actually moving. It is a static installation: a frozen movement. If you look closely, you can figure out what happened on that table."

Below are some photos of the 3D printed frames.
