NFB Animation Hothouse - DVD

Top of page

The NFB Animation Hothouse - DVD brings together the first six Hothouse films created in Winter 2003, the Inside the Hothouse documentary that gives life to the entire Hothouse experience, and a collection of photos and images taken during those magical, frenetic 12 weeks. The six Hothouse filmmakers and their NFB collaborators offer candid and often pithy comments on the nature of auteur animation filmmaking, the place and role of the NFB in that world, and the excitement and fear of making a first professional film. The NFB Animation Hothouse description goes: "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!"
