The Shift: A Dystopian Sci-Fi Animated Short Film

Take a look at this fantastic short movie about the replacement of humans by AI made and directed by Johan Samuelsson.

Johan Samuelsson has released a long-awaited short movie The Shift, a movie about AI robots that are trying to comprehend and master creativity by kidnapping and monitoring newborns. 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 simplifies and replaces humans' tasks and jobs.

"As a Motion Designer, I experience this constantly in updated software 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 by 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," comments Johan.

Johan Samuelsson is a Swedish motion designer currently working in the commercial film industry in Stockholm, Sweden. Over the years he has worked with many different styles and clients such as Netflix, Microsoft, and American Express. The Shift is his first narrative project and has been a personal project on the side of his daytime job since he graduated from school in 2017.
