'The Animal Project' Trailer

Mongrel Media released a trailer for Ingrid Veninger's latest film The Animal Project. I caught The Animal Project at TIFF last fall, loved it (review here), and included it in my list of Top 10 Canadian films of 2013 (here), but if those endorsements aren't enough, check out 1:05!

Synopsis: Leo (Aaron Poole) is a mid-30s widower, single parent, and struggling acting teacher. His relationship with his teenage son (Jacob Switzer) is rocky, and he's dissatisfied with his everyday life. So, after he has an unusual and inspiring dream, he decides to shake things up by having the group of actors he teaches do something called "The Animal Project" -- whereby they will all don furry mascot suits and become 'animals' in the real world. It's a long, rainy night, and not everything goes as planned. But in the process of opening themselves up to the unknown, each participant in The Animal Project not only learns something about themselves, but also has the chance to grow a little bit.

The Animal Project will be in Canadian theatres June 2014 and will also be one of 13 festival films included in Vimeo's partnership with TIFF.
