What is the film about?

A moth looks for a shelter but he stumbles upon an unordinary candle.

What influenced it?

Influence came from different sources, one was from a Kit Kat ad with a moth hitting itself on a light bulb, the idea of the candle came from flame dancers/jugglers and the idea of the story was a concept i was meditating upon during my adolescence on how some one could die for love. I finally gave life to it with the help of these two small characters.

A little background information...

This is one of the many ideas i have noted down over the years and that i would like to see them on the big screen. It is also my first so i decided to take one of the simplest concepts i had so it would be easy to animate in time.

How was the film made?

The animation and coloring were done in Adobe Flash while the backgrounds were done in Adobe Photoshop and everything was put together and edited in Adobe Premiere.
