Filmmaker creates an amusing video starring a 3D-printed infant

Here's another awesome stop-motion animation from Eran Amir. The Israeli filmmaker 3D printed a series of tiny baby sculptures and use them to shoot amusing timelapse videos of a naked infant running in various locations and environments. We see the baby cross over a snow-covered landscape in Germany, the Dead Sea, bridges, alleys, beaches and even duck under Anish Kapoor's Cloud Gate in Chicago. 

The process is very labor-intensive, as Amir must attach one of the figurines on a rig every time he moves the camera forward. But for this video, the result was well worth the effort. Check out these behind-the-scenes shots that show how it was done.
