Edit: sorry the first upload of shifter was bugged, anyway here's the fixed copy thank you! :)
This animation was my entry for Animahenasyon 2014, and Metro Manila Film Fest. This Animation was one of the top 5 finalists of Metro Manila Film Fest 2014, and one of the finalists for the professional category of Animahenasyon 2014. I hope you like it! If you do, please share it to your friends! :)
A symbiotic life form called "Shifter" is in the possession of an ordinary civilian. The "Shifter" can manipulate the shape, form, and size of it's host as long as it is united with it's host. Nobody knows where the symbiote came from, or what it's purposes are, but unknown forces are trying to get their hands on "Shifter". What would happen when "Shifter" falls into the wrong hands?
The animation “Shifter” is a means for me to showcase my skills as an animator, and also to practice more dynamic and complex animating techniques. The conceptualization of the animation started at July 12, 2013, and after a few weeks I started animating the movie. The inspiration for the looks of the main protagonist came from “Toothless” in “How to Train your Dragon”, and the concept of the foreign symbiote that helps the main protagonist in the story was inspired by “Venom”, a symbiotic life form that gives power to it’s host in the Comic book series “Spider Man”. The programs used for this film is Adobe Flash, Photoshop, Vegas Pro, Adobe After Effects, and Audition.
