Shadow Realm – (AUT) Capstone Short Film
Auckland University of Technology – Digital Design – Capstone final project
Shadow Realm is a short 3D film that aims to spread awareness about Chronic Traumatic
Encephalopathy (CTE) by showing an abstract journey into a damaged mind.
“How can I use Visual Effects as a platform to show the long term consequences of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)”?
As a fan of combat sports, particularly in Boxing & MMA, this disease has quickly taken over the lives of some very notable fighters. It is tough to see some aging fighters suffer from such traumatic injuries after their fighting career. Thus, this has inspired me to research more about this disease and motivated me to spread awareness about CTE and the long-lasting effects people may experience.
