A French film is Siggraph Asia best in show

Such an exploit is certainly not a model for productivity driven studios. But it shows how far 3D printing techniques are on the show today, and how far they can go into artistic expression and creation.

A film by Gilles-Alexandre Deschaud.
Chase Me combines the magic of film with the wonder of 3D printing. This short film follows a ukelele-playing girl who is chased through a dark forest by the monster that emerges from her own shadow.
Filmmaker Gilles-Alexandre Deschaud spent two years 3D printing 2,500 parts to create each frame of the film. From the characters to the set, all elements were printed using the Form 1+ SLA 3D Printer. Each precise detail comes together to form a beautiful representation of a magical world.
