Ice Ages

Howie Shia
2004 | 1 min
Seeking shelter from a thunderstorm, a man sits in a pub watching the ice in his glass melt away. Howie Shia marries his graphic illustration style with subtle animation and a haunting soundtrack to conjure up anxiety and foreboding. He used pen and ink on tracing paper and later composited and coloured digitally.

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