Hi -

"Pink Dot" by Takeshi Murata is pretty great and would possibly fit the
theme. He somehow manipulates the video codec to create these beautiful
digital, painterly and creepy morphing effects. In Pink Dot he uses
footage from Rambo: First Blood. there's a video of it on youtube shot
off a gallery wall which is awful quality but you can get an idea. He
also does drawn animations that are worth looking at, too....

Ishu Patel's animation work is also very striking and involves a lot of
shapeshifting (as would a lot of animation, I suppose) -- he uses more
traditional techniques...
