This is the video I submitted for the Clipper Contest during the Cortoons Animation Film Festival 2012 that took place in Rome.
The theme I chose is "Clipper: Nature Saver" and I decided to give a pay off which is "Clipper: is lifelong" because it is possible to reload the lighter and use it as long as it works, hopefully during the whole life!
I use a count down that starts in 1959, when clipper was born, and end in 2012.
Moreover the Clipper lighter uses isobutane and it is recyclable therefore eco friendly so I used a nature landscape as background.
