Jaegar is a science-fiction, action and fantasy short animated film about metamorphosis. It was created for audiences between the age of 5 to 12 years old and the
term “Jaegar” is defined as a hunter in German. The story is about a young boy named Zaori who met a unique creature called Perol. Perol has a special ability that can
change Zaori to become an extraordinary hunter with the power of metamorphosis fusion, which is shown in the final scene where Perol tried to save Zaori by fusing with him
together in order to defeat the evil gigantic creature.
The idea of the story replicates a real hunter’s life, with a slight change in concept, for instance, in the real world, dog or wolf is used to aid a hunter, but in the Jaegar world,
an unidentified creature with special abilities is used to aid a hunter. This kind of concept expresses interests to see how each character develops their mutual attachment in
the Jaegar world.
The overall character design for Zaori, the main character of the story is influenced by a popular Japanese game called Megaman and his hunting bow is well-designed and
enhanced with a science fiction element. On the other hand, Perol is inspired by the cute creature from MMORPG game called Ragnarok and a well-known Japanese animated
series called Pokemon.
Both characters, the environment and assets were created using Autodesk 3ds Max. Biped bones were used to rig each character’s body and face. Each character has thirty
seven (37) different expressions for morpher and they were linked to a simple facial controller via a reaction manager.
