RETURN TO HAIRY HILL

SHORT FILM

IN-PRODUCTION

Emerging from our art director Daniel Gies' personal history, Home was Hairy Hill began as a floating collection of inter-generational tales remembered from childhood. They morphed over the years and took the form of a single true story: Dan’s Franco-Albertan great-grandmother, his Métis rodeo star great-grandfather, and their fragile family’s breaking point. Transformed into symbolic fiction inspired by oral traditional storytelling, executed with an in-house hybrid paper, 2D, 3D, and Game Engine (with our own Scene Track plug-in) pipeline, illustrative animation experience, and input from a number of other artists, Home was Hairy Hill is a haunting and deeply personal tribute to family folklore.
