Shapeshifter
Official Trailer, 29. Stuttgarter Filmwinter Festival for Expanded Media.
Inspired by the festival's 2016 motto Formwandler, Max Hattler’s trailer Shapeshifter explores video glitches induced by digital signal processing compression artefacts, which have given rise to a whole genre of YouTube videos dedicated to exposing shapeshifting reptilians hiding behind the surface of the video screen.
