Film: “The Life of a Lighter”

We are two Central St Martins final year degree moving image students. We are making a short film for our final major project, about the journey of a disposable lighter. The story shows whos hands the lighter passes through, the different scenarios it finds itself in with the subtext being the light and dark of human life.
