The Nose

Student film with collaborators Hope Hamilton and Marc Wasiuta

16mm, 1 minutes , colour, 1984

This was a group project from a first year film course, early in my degree at the University of Regina with animation instructor Elaine Pain. My collaborators were Marc, an art student, and a Hope, retired kindergarten teacher. I recall that Marc had read the story "The Nose" by Nikolai Gogol and suggested we adapt it. We all convened at Hope's house and discovered the wonders of a person with a huge collection of craft supplies. Marc did the main designs of the protagonist and the wolf. I planned out most of the action to tell the story. I believe I suggested the ending in which the protagonist gets a bottle from his pocket and begins drinking.
