n win­try Mon­treal, an­i­mated filmmaker Janet Perl­man ( Bully Dance) keeps warm toil­ing over Mon­sieur Pug, a new 2-D short about a para­noid dog be­ing pro­duced by the An­i­ma­tion and Youth Stu­dio (French Pro­gram) of the Na­tional Film Board of Canada.

A cre­ative new take on pa­per re­cy­cling: doggy origami! Janet and pro­ducer Marc Ber­trand dis­cuss Mr. Pug’s mo­ti­va­tions for the new scene. This is where the magic hap­pens! In­spi­ra­tional pugs greet the di­rec­tor from her door- cum- gallery.

No NFB of­fice is com­plete without some car­toon­ish decor. Posters for com­pleted shorts, like Chris Lan­dreth’s Sub­con­scious Pass­word, line the stu­dio halls. Stop, col­lab­o­rate, and lis­ten: Janet chats with fel­low NFB an­i­ma­tors Jan­ice Nadeau and Nicola Le­may.

Hands- on di­rec­tor Janet puts the fin­ish­ing touches on her ca­nine hero. At mi­nus 24 de­grees, even the lo­cals ad­mit it’s a bit chilly in Mon­treal today. Wel­come to the Na­tional Film Board of Canada!

Now en­ter­ing “The Cre­ative Di­men­sion” ... what sur­pris­ing chal­lenges could await this day? The short’s mar­ket­ing man­ager Geneviève Bérard ac­com­pa­nies the di­rec­tor through the stylish stu­dio.

Mon­sieur Pug cen­ters on the hi­lar­i­ous an­tics of a trou­bled pet.
