Cigarette Girl is an independent feature. I was the cinematographer, editor and sound designer for. Directed by John Michael McCarthy.

CIGARETTE GIRL mixes misfit social commentary with beautiful babes and bad boys, guns and glamour, and lots of cigarettes, all shot with the feel of a classic grindhouse roughie.

In the near future smokers are demonized for their dirty habit, forced into their own sleazy suburbs, known simply as the Smoking Section. This neighborhood is bad and mainstream non-smoking society hopes its nicotine addicted inhabitants will just vanish. Put simply: it's not the place you want to be walking through at night. Until her grandmother's smoking cough turns out to be a little more serious. Then Cigarette Girl decides she's going to stop smoking cold turkey, but, whenever prohibition is enforced organized crime is close behind ... and quitting may be the easier task facing our heroine.
