Ideas & Smoke

Graduation project that I made in my master year.

In a play of contrasts we follow an artistic cigar smoker who guides us through his thinking process.

Ideas & Smoke is a cinematic attempt to bring two very different art forms together in a narrative context. The static image that refers to classical painting comes face to face with the animated movements that refers to the slapstick of the twenties. How he works, or in any medium, in fact makes little difference, because everything is all about ideas.
