After the completion of the movie it was screened in D & AD festival show and was awarded for as best movie. Taking this as positive note he moved further forward to create another movie.

Michael said he was very much new to 3d printing when he was provided a 3d printer “I used a Makerbot Replicator (2) to print the models for this project and a Microsoft Kinect to scan myself in 3D. After correcting and cleaning up the model of myself in Maya I took it into the motion capture plug-in to get the animation. From there I took a snippet of animation along the timeline and exported each frame as an .OBJ file to bring into Makerware for printing.”
