A Few Thoughts on Smoking

Simon Burrill explores the reasons behind his obsessive smoking habit in this short, well thought out film. Using a combination of techniques, including hand drawn sketches and animation, he successfully conveys the sense of helplessness associated with nicotine addiction.
Although this piece examines a rather dark element of humanity, it still manages to have a light and playful atmosphere to it, something that can be very difficult to illustrate. I particularly enjoyed the honesty and conviction with which he approached the project.
If you're a smoker, or even if you're not, A few thoughts on smoking is definitely worth a look.
