Don't Blink

Don't Blink

| 1 min

This is a combination of stop-motion puppet and drawn animation. We observe a forlorn woman on a Halifax dock, whose loneliness is lifted by the passing of a fishing trawler. A metaphor on the connectiveness of water and water's capacity as a medium of freedom.

This film was made as part of the first edition of the NFB's Hothouse apprenticeship.
