02 Info

A bizarre and futuristic story, where in a Kafkaesque tone a bureaucrat suffers an irremediable metamorphosis until becoming a being made entirely of paper. For the development of these visual effects, we designed the visual concept of the creature, and we modeled, animated and rendered in photorealistic 3D the different stages of the character's metamorphosis, until its final climax.

Also very important was the work of integration and composition with the main photography of the short film, which together with the work of 3D have been awarded in several festivals all around the world.
