“The Shift” – Award Winning – Dystopian Sci-Fi Animated Short Film (2021)
Many years ago tech giants lost control of AI robotic technology. By kidnapping and monitoring newborns, the Ai robots are now trying to master the one thing they have yet to understand… Creativity.
The Shift is about creativity, and the things that separate humans from robots. The idea for “The Shift” grew from the development of new Artificial Intelligence (AI) focused technology that simplify, and replace humans tasks and jobs. As a motion designer I experience this constantly in updated softwares, and countless of plug-ins that simplify daily tasks. For example some crafts that took several hours to complete by hand a couple of years ago, can now be done in a few minutes or have been entirely replaced AI technology. Eventually, together with the development of technology the techniques and mechanics of animation will be simplified to the extent that anyone will be able to produce a pretty moving image. However, I believe that the ability to create concepts and develop ideas cannot be replaced by technology.
Currently watching the Grand Magic Games arc of Fairy Tail. After that, I’ll take a break and watch something else (probably Soul Eater or Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, whatever I’m in the mood for). Any other recommendations would be nice.
Oh, and I’m also keeping up on episodes from Demon Slayer Season 2.
Edit: I just looked up how long the Grand Magic Games arc is, and I probably won’t be able to watch all of it right away. I’ll wait until I’m on Christmas break to watch the rest of it.
Re-watching Cardcaptors for Season 4 of Epic-Fantasy Reviews (which starts in November) already watched a great deal of it for my channel, the Canadian CultureCorner. Would rather be re-watching Yu Yu Hakusho or DBZ.
