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

Details

This short animation film is an “epic” adventure and a magical environmental fairy tale. Amy Lockhart uses cutouts, drawings and collage (captured and manipulated as digital multi-plane animation) to conjure up her whimsical world.

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