The National Film Board of Canada seeks submissions from emerging Canadian filmmakers (young and not-so-young), and artists intrigued by animation art, for the 6th edition of Hothouse, a 12-week paid apprenticeship in full-on, all-inclusive, real-world animation filmmaking.
A new dimension this year -- and a giant experiment -- Hothouse 6 will be produced in stereoscopic 3D! No need to dust off your red and blue glasses or script elaborate face-poking scenes; this is about using space as an essential story device and expressive tool (intimacy, fantasy, paradox, etc).
Hothouse is about making animation faster and more flexibly, embracing animation’s many possibilities while maintaining creative and technical excellence. We’re looking for six new talents who are willing and able to jump head-first into this intensive, immersive experience.
Deadline: February 19, 2010
Program Dates: April 05 – June 25, 2010
Location: Montreal, Quebec
Theme: “Inside Out”
Tell it in a minute. Do it in 3 months. Make it Stereoscopic 3D.
