When Hairy Met Sally
Emily’s film When Hairy Met Sally is a short 3D animated venture addressing the struggles of puberty in a modern era, specifically for women. She was inspired by instructional videos of the 1950s and their absurd notions, such as hiding under a desk to protect oneself from an atomic bomb. Emily embraces the humor in these videos in her film, combining stylized 3D models and quirky storytelling in the context of an educational film about puberty. The audience for a traditional puberty film – in this case a young girl – finds herself as the subject of When Hairy Met Sally and battles with her impending puberty.
