A change of heart

A change of Heart is about a hunter that encounters a mythical creature. Determined to go after the beast, the hunter tries to track it down and kill it, but not everything goes according to plan.

A change of Heart is my first animated short made during my first year at the University of the arts Utrecht as a 2D animation student.
The film was made in the span of three months. Because of this short time span, I eventually had to cut down a lot of the original ideas, animation quality and the amount of detail in the character designs. I dicided to dedicate most of my time to try to create a believable and atmospheric world that has just as important of a roll as the hunter and the creature.
