The main character is a big nose, with bionic properties. His body is a nose; the nose has arms and legs. He looks odd and is funny.
This is a stop-motion video, the actors are made of recycled paper and pasteboard, the environment is created with simple and everyday objects. We used this technique to communicate the simplicity and unlimited possibilities of such a video production. The character Nanobionic Nose is on his first mission and he is inspecting an airport terminal. He suddenly detects a dangerous explosive, and quickly activates the alarm. With his brave action he prevents disaster. He receives a medal of honour and he feels like a hero. But the action is not a usual part of his life and the Nose is becoming bored. One day he goes to the bazaar and is walking among people; hes irritable and is becoming intrusive and annoying. The nose approaches a lady and sniffs under her skirt; she gets angry, and calls the police. The Nose ends up in the prison. The poor Nose is behind the bars beating his nose against the wall. In this video we used the metaphor of Goethes The Sorcerer's Apprentice where the inexperienced apprentice gets in trouble because hes not able to handle the situation.
