Hothouse 10: September 8 — November 28, 2014

Alexandra Lemay

A mink walks into a fur store… Fantastic Mr. Fox meets The Shining in this stop-motion cautionary tale of what happens when we don’t think enough about what we buy.

Inspired by found sound of two dogs growling, proudly animal-friendly, and produced as part of the 10th edition of the NFB’s Hothouse apprenticeship.

After discovering a passion for stop-motion while completing her BFA in Film Animation at Concordia University, Alexandra went on to study Practical Effects at Sheridan College. Her experiences outside the filmmaker’s chair allowed her to work for museum exhibits, special effects studios, and costume shops.
