The short film ‘Foxed!’ has had such a successful run at festivals and has been so well received that David Cronnenberg has decided to adapt it into a feature film, with Martin Katz producing. James E.D. Stewart directed ‘Foxed!’ along side Nev Bezaire, who also penned the film. Athena Karkanis lends her voice to the main character Emily and the mother’s voice belongs to actress Fiona Highet.
In ‘Foxed’ a little girl named Emily is kidnapped by foxes and forced to slave away in a mine beneath her home. When she finally has a chance to run she finds her way to a two-way mirror. On the other side she can see her mother at home talking the fox that has replaced her.
The short stop-animation film is dark and is not designed with children in mind. It tackles a dark subject and does it well. Even though the film is short I was left thinking about it for days. ‘Foxed’ is moving in a sad, but great way. I can’t wait to see how it is adapted. Keep your eye out for more projects from James E.D. Stewart and Nev Bezaire.
