Hothouse 10: September 8 — November 28, 2014

Alex Boya

A 1-minute cart ride through the mental shopping mall of attention deficit disorder.

Inspired by found sound of a shopper’s vlog, hand-drawn without a light table, and produced as part of the 10th edition of the NFB’s Hothouse apprenticeship.

Now his focus is turned on the unconscious, fully documenting the process in strange drawings found on YouTube. His previous short animation, Rite of Passage, screened at the Fantasia International Film Festival.
