Itch, was created as part of the Hothouse program at the National Film Board of Canada’s Montreal Animation Studio.
Key aspects of Hothouse include the active participation of an experienced mentoring director, a team of NFB technical and post-production experts who support the filmmakers, and emphasis on the role of the producers as creative partners, all of which highlight the collaborative process of NFB filmmaking.
Itch, is an abstract expression of what it feels like to go through an eczema flare-up. Please enjoy at fullscreen with headphones on.
