This is an attempt to answer a question I'm often asked, "So what did you do on Shapeshifter?" The before element shows a precomp of the elements from CG.
Any enhancements I brought to the project were built on an incredibly strong foundation of vivid art direction and amazing CG. Of note, there were a handful of shots I did not composite -- I have marked those shots with a small green triangle in the bottom left.

...moving on from Macro Kingdom, we pass through the portal of a microscope to venture into the Micro Empire ... surrounding us … inhabiting us …
Stranger than fiction… molecular conflict and mitochondrial warfare … a heartstopping, subcellular epic … a truly microcinematic experience …
“as an enthusiast for little things, I wanted to go deeper than the macro universe, so I found myself hanging on the eyepiece of a microscope. The real challenge was definitely the small depth of field in microscopy. It’s really fascinating how detailed this tiny world is.”
