we wanted to make a little thank you gift for barry & john (we stayed with them last week in manhattan) and so we asked sparky (who lives there too) if he wanted to collaborate with us on a short film.
he said (of course we speak “dog”):
yes – but only if it’s in B&W like Monsieur Godard‘s films.
but not surprising, considering the provenance of such a statement.
so we both chewed over pencils and did a storyboard and then shot-the-film and we took the footage back to Los Angeles (where Absolutely Everyone edits a film on sunday mornings) and spoke with sparky via email (yes, he has an email address – refreshingly retro actually – neither of us skype you see) and here it is!
sparky is already in a beret.
and we’re in a battered old leather jacket.
