Don't Blink

Top of page

Combining stop-motion puppet and drawn animation, Don't Blink observes a young woman, somewhat forlorn on a Halifax dock, whose loneliness is lifted by the passing of an otherworldly fishing trawler. A metaphor on the connectedness of water, and water's capacity as a medium of freedom.

This animated short was made for Hothouse 1, the NFB’s program for emerging filmmakers, whose central theme was “Water and Our Relationship to It.”.
