Chloe Short Film

"Someone wants to go on a walk…!" If you saw Disney's animated Big Hero 6 in theaters last year, you saw the wonderful short film before it called Feast from director Patrick Osborne. It's a delightful animated short told from the perspective of a dog that one boy adopts, and it's nominated for an Oscar. Well, similar to Feast, another short film has hit the web called Chloe and it's a live-action short film told from the POV of a dog (a golden retriever). This one tells a much more honest, real-life story and is a bit more "adult" we should say, but it's just as good. Made by the same filmmaker who gave us the short The Hatchling. Enjoy!

Short description from Vimeo: "Dogsitting's easy, responsibility's a Bitch." Indeed. This short film Chloe is written & directed by up-and-coming filmmaker John Wikstrom (follow him @WikStorm), of the dino egg short The Hatchling previously. It was produced by Lexa Payne, starring Matthew Billman, Natalie Bogart and Brittany Rosoff, with cinematography by Zachary Johnson. Wikstrom wrote in an email, "It's pretty different than anything I've ever done, but I'm pretty proud of it." After his two shorts, I'm very much looking forward to following his filmmaking career. He's quite talented and always unique. Agreed?

That shot with the hose

I have seen both his shorts. Both are really aesthetically pleasing but, for me personally, they lack something. I can't put my finger on it. I'm not saying they are not good. They both were very unique and original and WAY better then anything I have shot. I will continue watching his shorts and look forward to see his progress.
