ACTUAL STOP-MOTION FILM BASED ON PROGRAMMED ANIMATION This piece was created based on the theme "Programming" for TECHNE, an educational TV program broadcasted nationally in Japan. Chief Technology Officer Qanta Shimizu made this stop-motion film using over 300 matchboxes from the personal collection of his wife's grandfather. The movements of the matchboxes are entirely defined with openFramework-based motion programming and shot in 30fps.
