Hot Dog

A group of coworkers attempt to rescue a dog locked in a hot car. Chaos ensues in a single shot.

Directors Statement

I wanted to throw out all my usual tricks (fast cuts, dolly moves, light cues) and see if I could make something really simple and performance focused — hence the single shot. But then I got ambitious and my creativity took over and we ended up with this super complicated and choreographed piece. I wanted it to feel overwhelming in its tension and anxiety, and I think doing it as a oner never gives you a chance to catch your breath. I’ve been pitching it as “1917 but with idiots in a parking lot” and hopefully it brings a smile to people in these dark times.
