Hothouse 10 – All the Rage

This short if from the National Film Board of Canada’s Hothouse 10 where they challenge filmmakers to use found sounds as the basis of their shorts and make something in 3 months subverting the sound’s meaning in some way. This short reminds of an old Emo Philips joke: “I think fur looks better on an animal than on a human being. So I dress my dog in a mink teddy.”

“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.”
