This is just gorgeous... The colours, the figures. The clapping hands are my favourite part.

I wish there was a way to buy a piece or two.

That was delightful, and engaging, and my brain kept being boggled at the technical aspects of it all.

I wonder if they used a laser cutter?

Nice chirpy song too.

Thanks so much for this. I'm a huge Shugo fan, and this makes up a little for the fact that he isn't coming to the northeast at all on his upcoming U.S. tour with Kishi Bashi. He usually has some good animation in his videos (see Green Rain and Linne for examples), but this is the best work I've seen. Really nice.

I love, love, love this video. Especially the fishpants at 2:51.

I hope they used a laser cutter.

This video is more my style. I like my papercraft music videos whimsical, it seems.

Way to slow starting, but when the figure was jumping, waving, riding bikes, etc. that was pretty cool. Music OK.

Mr. Visible: WOW! Not only is the video amazingly well done and quite lovely, but I like the music. Have never encountered the Staves before and am quite glad you posted.

I hope they used a laser cutter.

I also wonder. All the parts looked so clean, unlike the usual ash and burn marks for laser cutting paper stock.

The name of this song is "Katachi" for anyone else who, like me, comes across it and thinks MeFi would like it (glad I searched the artist's name before posting!).

There's another cute video for his song Decorate - it's a zoetrope.
