Travellers' Guide to Hothouse examines the conceptual and organizational principles that have shaped the NFB Hothouse into a unique apprenticeship program for emerging filmmakers. Using Hothouse 4 as a case-study and the intensive 12 week schedule as a road map, Travellers' Guide to Hothouse introduces us to the creative and technical mentors and offers practical insights about this type of learning and filmmaking. The documentary covers all the key phases of the Hothouse program, including the selection process, story development, progress reviews, editing, music and post-production. This is essential viewing for instructors, producers, mentors and anyone interested in how to implement an aggressive, hands-on workshop in professional and auteur filmmaking.
