A man is possessed by his inner mind, struggling with his experiences throughout his life relating to ‘smoke’ and ‘death.’ The scene shows the final moments in his life, where he cannot resist his trauma anymore.
This short film “micros” is a collaboration project, merging with the music “Micros” composed by Kenichi Saeki. The story is inspired by how the music is uniquely formed. The music is played with a single flute. The music score is written in two different lines, the movement of the mouth and fingers. The two lines form completely separate, however, together they form the same single melody. This idea inspired me to create a character with two different worlds, while both are real and his true-self, interwoven.
