Since 2018 she’s worked in-house and freelance at a number of studios in Canada, and has directed two independent shorts. Most recently, she directed animation for a National Film Board documentary.

Project description: Sam and Franklin navigate an endless, dreamlike summer in industrial Hamilton: massive factories loom behind houses and electrical towers dot the beaches they explore. They spend most of their time loitering and participating in small acts of mischief, letting their imagination colour the dreary environment. Time moves slowly and in tandem with the muggy heat; their days are largely cyclical. One day, they encounter a strange event at the beach, which threatens to disrupt their routine and sense of reality forever. Told using atmospheric vignettes and with a strong sense of magical realism throughout, Northened explores the dreary wonder of Hamilton’s industrial landscape, and the ultimate limits of one’s environment
