Here is an excerpt from the script WARNING well too late:
INT. RESTAURANT KITCHEN - DISH ROOM - DAY
Dressed as a waiter, Debra unloads a bunch of dishes by the dishwasher from a tray.
A short older unattractive dishwasher steps around and starts feeling her ass and everything, copping major feels.
She just lets him, completely detached, then walks away.
Ultimately, what brings her to this decision to steal the vest from a service dog? How does she get the vest? What happens when she does? Support the production of DOG BOWL and find out everything.
Brittany will play the lead role in DOG BOWL.
Born in New York City, Brittany has been acting professionally since eighteen months old. In 2004, she graduated from the esteemed LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts (the “FAME” school) with a degree in Drama. Brittany studied filmmaking at NYU, further rounding out her skills as an artist.
Off-Broadway, Brittany appeared in "The Glory of Living" with Anna Paquin, directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman, as well as in Neil LaBute’s "Autobahn” opposite Bill Pullman. In Los Angeles, she's worked with many acclaimed theater companies, winning a 2011 LA Weekly Award and a LA Drama Critics Circle Award for her work in “Margo Veil.” Brittany’s television work includes “Rescue Me” “Law & Order” “Law & Order: SVU” “Guiding Light” and “All My Children," as well as numerous commercials and voice-overs.

You can see her regularly in the popular web-series “Ave. 43” and she will be appearing on “Dexter” this October.
Gordy is the writer and director of DOG BOWL. After working on a family film for a few years, he unconsciously decided to write a short he would feel uncomfortable showing his family, and now he's gonna make it, re: DOG BOWL.
After making his first film at age 12, Gordy has continued to tell original stories in film and theatre his whole life. Winner of the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance for LOVE LIZA, Gordy went on to world premiere his directorial debut, A COAT OF SNOW, as the only US competition entry at the Locarno International Film Festival. He has worked with Chris Cunningham, Bob Byington, Pat Healy and Abigail Spencer, founded the BlueCat Screenplay Competition, and taught screenwriting at USC. He recently completed a screenplay on Christmas shopping.
Born and raised in Lawrence, KS, Chris has been making movies ever since he could hold a camera. After graduating from the University of Kansas, he came to Los Angeles where he's worked in production on several projects, most notably on Christopher Nolan's THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and Quentin Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED. Chris is currently partnered with actor Rob Riggle (THE HANGOVER, 21 JUMP STREET, and STEP BROTHERS) to produce a variety of content for film and television.
One of the greatest Jayhawks ever, his charisma, leadership, and knack for comedy gold make Chris a perfect fit for Dog Bowl.
Kalyn will play a featured role in this story.

Excited to have Dan in the cast of DOG BOWL.
Born in Southern California, raised in upstate New York, Dan has been acting
since Jr. High, about the same time he met Gordy Hoffman. Their friendship was solidified forever when, as high school seniors, they were cast in a production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Since then, Dan's stage work has included appearing in On Four and The Boiler Room at Actor's Art Theater in Los Angeles, in Gordy Hoffman's BedSet and in Steven Wagner's improvised stage series Town Meeting at Creativity: The Bookstore.
Dan has appeared in several TV pilots and shows such as The X-Files, Party of Five and Chicago Hope and others, and in the movies The Girl Next Door and Love Liza (we love that fucking movie).
Klass has turned his hand to directing, helming solo stage shows "Sex: The Good, The Back and The Ugly" and "No, I Didn't Even Kiss Her" by hipster monologist Lance Anderson, and directing the Red Rover music video for alt-rock band Kittens for Christian (Serjical Strike/SONY).
With his storytelling audio-blog The Bitterest Pill, the former stand-up
comedian was a pioneer of podcasting, launching his show in 2004 and being
amoung the first podcasters to draw the attention of the news media to the
flegling form. Soon to publish the 300th episode of the award-winning podcast
The New York Times called "Sublime," Klass is developing the show into a
webseries and a book of personal essays. Or two.
Thank you so much for your support of this story. We are sincerely grateful for any help you may be able to provide and we very much look forward to collaborating with you on the making of DOG BOWL.
