The National Film Board of Canada have released the English language version of their 2018 film Animal Behaviour in full on their YouTube channel from today until the 12th of this month. Produced by Michael Fukushima and directed by Alison Snowden and David Fine – the creative team behind such animation milestones as the Oscar®-winning Bob’s Birthday and its spinoff series Bob and Margaret – the much-anticipated return to short filmmaking has yielded official selections at festivals including Animafest Zagreb, Annecy, EIFF, OIAF and MAF as well as winning major awards at LAAF and Anima Mundi among others.

We spoke with the directors in episode 81 of the Skwigly Animation Podcast to learn more about how the film, in which five animals attend a group therapy session led by a canine therapist, came together:

Animal Behaviour is among to 10 animated shorts to have advanced in the 2019 Oscar®-race. Snowden and Fine’s other notable collaborations including the multi-award-winning films In and Out, George and Rosemary and their Oscar®-nominated NFTS film Second Class Mail.

@themooks @skwigly I know it's kind of obvious, but I used to see it as 'important but secondary'. I don't see it as secondary any more.
