“The Morphable Man”

: How many times you’ve been transformed by love?

Elevator Pitch: “The Morphable Man” is a late coming of age romantic-comedy about a man who tries to hide an emotionally triggered condition that makes him transform in all kinds of objects, from LEGOs to barbed wire. He seems to be fine with anti-depressants and isolation until the day he has to go out, meeting the girl that will make him fall in love and morph out of control.

Production Team:

Writer/Director Jonathan Ostos Yaber, Is a film and animation director that for over the past 9 years together with his studio Come Sesos (Brain Eaters), have produce a strong list of short films, music videos and commercials mixing techniques from live action, stop motion, CGI, 2D and experimental animation.

The team is responsible for “La nostalgia del Sr. Alambre” an award winning stop motion/CGI animation about a shadow puppet artist who has to decide between love and fame, that screened in more than 200 film and animation festivals.

the Production
: We want to touch people with this surreal but very humane tale about a man trying to hide his real emotions in an effort to fit in this society who do not understand his unique condition that ultimately represents what we all live during our lives, an ever changing transformation.

This will be a unique romantic comedy because we’ll mix Live action with character driven VFX, giving new a twist to the typical romantic film with a different approach, style and texture.

Romantic-comedies aren’t dead they just need new air to breath.
