Dead Dog is a short film that examines the space between dreams and reality through the lens of a violent murder.
There is a ton of excitement and chatter about this project buzzing around our little community of bungalows in the Hollywood Hills. Our director, Bryan Arrigo is my neighbor and before we began the journey of working on this project together I had secretly wanted to collaborate with him on a film. It may sound creepy but I could hear all of his writing sessions with one of his partners and wanted in. The tipping point came when I got an invite from him to see his last film, Carl's Lament which premiered at the LA Fringe Film Festival. After the screening as I was walking out of the theater laughing and slightly disturbed, I turned to Bryan and said "can we work together now?" Thankfully he obliged.
Bryan sent me the script for Dead Dog and I immediately liked it. I knew it was something we could both sink our teeth into so we dug in and worked through two months worth of rewrites, notes, beer drinking, and idea sessions. During one of our location scouts we did a read through out in the desert, everyone got sunburned and dehydrated, WIN! No but really, we are now roughly 90% through pre-production. The film has been cast, locations have been set, and we have almost all of the equipment that we need to shoot. We will be shooting for three days in early September, two of them in the desert--Lancaster/Palmdale area, and one in Hollywood.
Your contribution will be going towards feeding the cast and crew, (water and suncreen) helping with a couple of camera add ons, lights, a makeup artist, and getting the film through post production.
We are excited for you to become a part of this film and look forward to sharing it with all of you!
