The story of Detective Incognito stayed with me for a couple of months. I just had the story of the Incognito Web Browser who was a Private eye in a Film Noir type film but I couldn’t managed to make something correct out of it.
Everything fell into place one I had the idea to mix it with an other plot – the one about a young boy watching porn. I finally managed to combine the two stories making them part of the same theme : self-acceptance.
I’m really happy about how this script turned out and the images in black and white are stunning.
Making this was a big risk as we never did anything in this style before, but in the end it was worth the effort.
Fun fact : My hat was too small and kept falling off.
