A microfilm animation on the 2020 Coronavirus Lockdown.
Closer is a microfilm animation.
Isolation is difficult. Social distancing especially harder. 2020 is a particularly strange year and it's a year of being able to sit down and really reflect where society should go next. To pause and think about the consequences of our actions.
To ask all of ourselves -- where do we go from here?

When Tigers Use To Smoke
A Storytelling Podcast by Kaido "Kid" Strange
When Tigers Use to Smoke is a podcast serial focused mainly on telling stories. Each episode has a different story, and each story may fit into a variety of genres. Explicit content is more than likely as these stories are often told by adults...with zero concept of a filter. The podcast is recorded in Tallinn, Estonia, created by Kaido "Kid" Strange with guests by local creative minds.
It can be found on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
