Short, surprising and always entertaining! Watch a collection of one-minute animated shorts from our Hothouse animation mentorship program, past and present.

Details

This animated short poses some interesting questions: what if buildings pulsed, trees tapped out beats, or shadows could whistle a tune? Through the creative interpretation and animation of the city's natural rhythms, Orange orchestrates a contagious urban dance.

Produced as part of the 5th edition of the NFB’s Hothouse apprenticeship.

The sounds of the city, attached to objects in the city landscape, create a musical composition of sounds, sights and rhythms. Students can create musical pieces, dances, visuals or poems to either accompany or respond to the sounds, sights and rhythms of the film.
