About Hothouse 1
Dates: January – March, 2004
Theme: “water and our relationship to it”
Mentoring Director: Christopher Hinton (Nibbles, cNote)
Take six promising animation filmmakers from across Canada, plant them in the NFB’s English Animation Studio, give them 12 weeks to create extremely short animation from concept to release with the full support and assistance of NFB creative experts and, voilà, the NFB Animation Hothouse! This is a practical prototype to both “talk the talk” of theory, and “walk the walk” of actually doing it.
