Short Film Corner: Isaac Cravit (Writer/Director) & Chris Bennett (Producer)

This month’s Short Film Corner we feature Good Boy, a five minute item which premiered at 2011’s Toronto Int. Film Festival and was one of the better short films to be include at the fest that year. With its crisp-looking, shot on the RED aesthetic, this tale of jealousy that takes place during an innocent day at the beach, centers around a Golden Retriever with abandonment issues. Loaded with a great deal of charm and a pinch of suspense, this unsurprisingly does a great job at playing with the auds expectations. I sat down with writer/director Isaac Cravit and his producer Chris Bennett to discuss how the short came about, what it means to bring a short to a prestige event such as TIFF and how they used the platform to put the final puzzles pieces in place for their feature film production (Solo) which begins lensing in today in and around. Here is my interview with the pair and the short film itself.
