Kindling is a short animated film created by a group of students from Sheridan College. It was produced by Imma Tiger Productions in the college's 3rd film festival.
Kindling is a folk tale that centers on the eponymous smoke spirit. Child-like in nature, it accidentally smothers life whenever it wishes to help. One day, Kindling wanders off to a forest that has been burned to the ground. It then brings back a malicious fire fox which begins to engulf the entire forest. The story ends with Kindling choking the fire fox after being swallowed. This serves as an origin story for why flame and smoke are always seen with each other.
