Hothouse 8: March 05 - May 25, 2012

Watch Baaad Dream

“Baad Dream” pokes fun at selectively-bred mammoth sheep, whose out-of-proportion form makes them vulnerable to tipping over, and a very fat Farmer trying to save them until he himself tips over, with dire consequences.

This animated short was made for Hothouse 8, the NFB’s program for emerging filmmakers, whose central theme was “Sheep Dreams”.

Jesse Gouchey is a visual artist residing in Calgary, Alberta. He’s an animator, graphic artist, illustrator and photographer but mostly a painter.
