A film by Gilles-Alexandre Deschaud.
Chase Me combines the magic of film with the wonder of 3D printing. This short film follows a ukelele-playing girl who is chased through a dark forest by the monster that emerges from her own shadow.
Filmmaker Gilles-Alexandre Deschaud spent two years 3D printing 2,500 parts to create each frame of the film. From the characters to the set, all elements were printed using the Form 1+ SLA 3D Printer. Each precise detail comes together to form a beautiful representation of a magical world.
If you want to receive one and unique 3D printed piece that as been used to create the short film Chase Me, you can donate wathever you want ( shipping paid separatly ). All the pieces will be differents and uniques ( most of them numbered, corresponding to the frame of each shot)
You will also support Gilles-Alexandre Deschaud to make his next short film.
The project first began as a CG animated film, which was then 3D printed — frame by frame. Each second of the film is made up of 15 frames. The elements in each scene was printed at 100 micron resolution, with minimal finishing beyond the removal of support material.
For wide angle, the young girl as been printed at 3cm high and gone up to 7cm for close-up.
Sets was printed in multiples parts then glue together. For exemple the giant tree required 22 differents parts
Sets like the growing tree or the warterfall needed to be printed frame by frame to give the illusion of mouvement.
“Chase Me is a story about embracing your fears, and turning them into something beautiful,” says Gilles-Alexandre.

Inglenook - 'the small corner next to the fireplace' - is a french trio from Paris.
Crossing the boundaries of french "chansons à textes", folk, and classical music, they started with songs written in english, but have now thoroughly embraced their native language. From intimates ballads to fiery dances, they mix ukulele, piano, drums and vocal harmonies, with the particularity of being led by classicaly trained voices.
Gilles-Alexandre Deschaud first heard of them - and their song Chase Me - at one of their concerts. Inspired by the piece of music, he approached them and ask to use it in a short movie he was about to create. Two years later, the film Chase Me was born.
Inglenook released their second EP, La Voleuse, in 2015, and perform in France and abroad on a regular basis.
