App lets you re-create the iconic A-ha’a ‘Take on Me’ music video

Music lovers create app that lets you re-create music videos

When the music video for A-ha’s Take on Me dropped in 1985 it rightly took the world by storm. Over 30 years later a technology company has developed an app. This uses augmented reality to create the same effect.

Moreover, it uses a process called “rotoscoping”. This blends live action with a pencil sketch animation. The entire video took 16 weeks to complete.

Finally, US-based Trixi Studios’ showcased it (which isn’t yet available to the general public) and put a proof-of-concept video up on YouTube.

Hopefully, they’ll take a shot at re-creating Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer next.
