It’s with great pleasure that we feature this video from Japanese artist Shugo Tokumaru (トクマルシューゴ) and his track Katachi. Of course, we’re all about finding the best and most creative video productions on the web, and this has to be one of the most amazing music videos that we’ve ever seen. Awe-inspiringly impressive, the level of mental dexterity required to even conceive of such an idea and then, the patience and skill to execute it as seamlessly as it is, is beyond impressive. Credit goes to the directors, Kijek/Adamski for this astounding music video production.
Created with approximately 2,000 silhouettes extracted from coloured PVC plates using a computer-controlled cutter, the Poland-based stop-motion artists were inspired by the title, Katachi which translates to’shape’.
“All these many ‘shapes’ are a representation of our memories – the good, the bad and the ugly,” says Tokumaru about the video. “In the same way that memories create incomplete pictures of the past, seemingly abstract, incongruous ‘shapes’ flow through the scene.”
