Watch A Plastic Bear Climb Some Stairs (Over And Over And Over Again)
April 14, 2014

Ever wondered what a bear would look like climbing stairs in an endless loop? No? Perhaps you should have, because that's more or less what we have here — except in place of a real bear it's a mesmerizing animation using 3D models. The video was produced by DBLG, a creative agency based in London. The whole thing took four weeks to shoot, using 50 3D-printed bears, each one ever-so-slightly different than the last. The bears were photographed individually — there are 50 frames in total — and animated using stop-motion. Why? As DBLG puts it, to "explore the use of stop frame animation with 3D printing." Or in other words, just because they can, and because the results are pretty hypnotic. So enough talk. Check out the video above for a look at this incredible stair-climbing bear, along with a brief behind-the-scenes preamble.
