The Costumed Smoker is the first installment of the Experimental Trilogy, which will consist of the soon-to-be-released “The Aloof Gamer” and “The Fallen Filmmaker”. The aim of this trilogy is for us to explore different creative ways to tell a story using unconventional methods. It is a learning journey for us to develop our skills as well as doing some testing grounds for the future productions.
Each of the 3 films is connected in some ways, and each employs different visual and mood styles, as well as directed by the same director. The Costumed Smoker comes from an inspiration that the director, Anthony L Tjandra, had seen from one of his friend’s birthday picture, and from there, he wrote the script and directed and edited for all 3 of the short films.
