First of all, I gotta say don't smoke. It'll kill ya dead! There was a lot of trial and error involved in shooting this. Getting the cigarette to burn properly was an issue and then processing it at a high enough resolution was a whole other problem in itself because of the lack of ram in my computer. I decided to go with the cigarette because I wanted to capture something burning, I figured the results of the cigarette regenerating from ash would be pretty impressive. I was surprised to see how much the cigarette moved around upon completion of the video. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for watching.
