WE ARE SMOKERS

Short Film

 
 

________

A journey from the house to the bus stop.

WE ARE SMOKERS is a short animation inspired by the city I was living in, Hong Kong, where smoking is considered part of its culture. Wherever one goes, someone will have a lit cigarette. This animation addresses how secondhand smoke is just as harmful as direct smoke, making us practically all smokers.

Character Design

Eventually, I decided on a geometric character. Then I simplified it to the point where the facial features were removed to create a more abstract representation of a person.
