A Dogs Story Short Film, Audience FEEDBACK from Dec. 2019 LA COMEDY Festival.

 

6acc77101d poster

“A Dog’s Story” is an absurdist short that tells the tragi-comic tale of an old dog who contemplates his bleak future after being laid off from his security job. The Dog has made a slide presentation of his current predicament and how he got here — an all-too-frequent story that many of us have also experienced in this new competitive economy where jobs are being replaced by automation and being too old can leave you marginalized.

COMEDY TV Pilot Best Scene Reading: Sink Or Swim, by Keith Shapiro

 Casey Allen is a sixteen year-old working his first ever summer job as a Lifeguard. Despite his expectations, the job is more about slacking and giving into peer pressure than it is about watching the pool.

CAST LIST:

Nick/Andrew: Shawn Devlin
Casey/Jared: Michael Ruhs
Narration: Ron Boyd
Jen: Bree Ali
Tiffany/Michelle: Hannah Ehman
