Amazing in Motion: Steps

[youvid embded=’t’ vid=’G1aJJMqshxg’]

It’s the story of one larger-than-life figure moving through a city in search of something special.

Steps is a new brand movie that shows off all of the emotion, cutting-edge design and precision craftsmanship that Lexus stands for.

The aim of Steps was to explore human motion in a new way. The figures featured were the result of painstaking hand craftsmanship combined with state-of-the-art 3D-printing – create a balance between organic shape and technical precision.

You can find out more about the technology used in the films, on our national website.

Standing over 11 feet tall, each figure was operated by five puppeteers brought together from around the UK, and specifically trained and rehearsed to operate the puppets. Each figure requires five operators: four connected directly to the puppet with a fifth who operates the head remotely.

Stay tuned for a look behind the scenes of Steps.

  1. Right after I watched a short version (15sec) on TV tonight (in Japan), I jumped right on my PC and searched “Lexus CM.” I saw a longer vision (1 min 30 sec) on the web and played it many times. I also saw the making video. Those guys (producers, puppeteers, designers, engineers, creators, cartographers, etc.) are AMAZING. They infused life into the carbon giant puppet and made me cry…. The music is great. You guys ARE just amazing, Lexus.

    1. Tania,

      The name of the song you requested is called I’m wandering and sung by the American Pop / Soul singer, Kristina Train.

      I myself have run it 8 times already!
