Seeing something more in a simple object may be the most ancient of creative gestures.

There’s only one matchstick left in the box. This blue headed matchstick, this ordinary thing is the protagonist of Mitch-Match series. The character embarks on a journey in every episode and always returns to the box, at the end of lots of strange, playful and imaginative adventures. A single matchstick, an easy-to-use object, and at the same an opportunity for creative experiences that evokes everyone’s fantasy.

Director’s statement
Playfulness lies in the fact that the eternal childlike fantasy is capable of imagining anything in objects and able to create a complex world from the simplest things - wooden cubes, pebbles. The Mitch-Match series makes an attempt to trigger this ability from everyone. We decided to use the most basic object – a matchstick – to create a story. The film delivers a highly creative and playful animation style with a simplest gesture by bringing matchsticks to life and tries to encourage the audience to put together the pieces of the puzzle. In this filmmaking gesture, I wanted to find a way to bring out the eternal child from everyone.
