Aussie dance rock collective Cut Copy have premiered a brand new music video for their Free Your Mind single “We Are Explorers.” Directed by Masa Kawamura, Aramique & Qanta Shimizu, the visual features 3D-printed characters exploring the streets of Los Angeles, with every frame created with stop-motion photography. “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 on location in every place,” explain Kawamura & Aramique in a press release.

Offering fans the opportunity to create their own “We Are Explorers” adventure story, BitTorrent is providing access to the 3D files so they can print them themselves and develop their own narratives of exploration. “Our goal with BitTorrent is to hand everything over to the public…our storyboards, stop-motion technical plans, 3D files for every figurine, and see what they do with it,” say Kawamura & Aramique. 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.”
