A film for anyone who enjoys the Easter miracle of a Cat and Dog dancing around the world to find the Easter Bunny and thank him for all their Easter Eggs.



-------------------------------------


It's time I put some of my short films, among other things, out on the world wide web. I should probably have a dedicated web-site seeing as I work in IT and 80% of my friends are either graphic designers or web developers but this is easier for now.

G3Tfilms (that's Get Films) started out its life as a part-time gig producing infomercial and training videos for various companies in Sydney. I often try to forget the experience because of the short shoot times, long editing hours and low pay but it really is where I learnt the underestimated art form of lighting for digital (DV does not look bad, just get a DOP who knows how to light it).

Luckily for me the focus of what I was producing changed one Easter. My niece and nephew were unable to make it to Sydney for their intended holiday. Armed with my camera (Sony DSR-PD for those who care about that sort of thing), some blue cardboard, a blue rubber glove, two finger puppets, and a chocolate Easter bunny (the latter two being my niece and nephews presents), the film ‘Cat & Dog find the Easter Bunny’ was written, designed and produced in 4 hours (including edit). Along with the finger puppets (I ate the chocolate bunny) the film was rushed into the mail as their gift. Despite the poor production values they loved it and much to my amusement they drove their parents insane by watching it over and over.

Strangely enough it appeared that anyone of any age I showed it too either cracked a smile or descended it fits of giggles. So emboldened, I sent a copy of ‘Cat & Dog find the Easter Bunny’ to every person I or my friends even vaguely knew with a child under 4 years old asking them to gauge their childs reaction. ‘Cat & Dog find the Easter Bunny’ was an instant Easter hit. When I started receiving orders for the video from people I had never met and fan-mail from a small, young and seemingly dedicated group of Cat and Dog fans I knew that G3Tfilms would never be the same again.

So, seeing as it's Easter, I will shortly upload ‘Cat & Dog find the Easter Bunny’ for you to enjoy in all it's silliness.

Take: 14

BRAVO! That was far and away the best movie I've seen since the last movie I've seen. That was well worth the effort and even though I am a tad over 4 years of age, I still laughed a few times during the "dancing scenes"...

BRAVO!

Yeah it's, ummmm, really, ummm, yes, 'good' isn't it? OK, it's not!

I'm not sure if it's the bad blue screening (strange blue sparkly stuff from their butts), the use of Popcorn as the sound track, or the 'happy' way they say "LET'S DANCE!" that gets people chuckling.

I hope you and Wendy have a really happy Easter. Much love to you both.

My Dear Mr Calzone,

I can't be happier that yourself and Monkey, my favourite ape like imp, enjoyed our little film. I hope the delightful 4 hours I spent filming our dance around the world with Dog and our special guest the Easter Bunny continues to bring the 'happy dance' loving boys and girls we made it for much happiness. I particularly enjoyed moshing outside the Leaning Tower of Pizza. I like Pizza.

Now that we know where the Easter Bunny lives I'll be sure to contact him and put in a special egg order for yourself, Monkey and the Beautiful Boy.

In answer to your rather personal question, Dog and I are in a wonderful monogomous relationship, a phrase here meaning two people who find happiness simply staring into each others eyes with wonder and disbelief at the others beauty, thank you. I believe dog will be in contact when he awakes from his snooze.

A very dancey Easter Calzone.

A very dancey Easter Monkey.

And a very Very dancey Easter to your sweet Boy.

LET'S DANCE!

Well if things don't work out call me. I'm not saying anything you probably don't already know but that dog has buried a lot of bones under a lot of trees.

Dogs and Dragons are all alike aren't they Mr Calzone?!

Bury bones, sniff each others butts, chase parked cars, and even lick feet. Dogs are silly, but no less lovable.

Hey Angie - Thanks for dropping bye. Happy Easter to you and your family.

The corniness is half it's charm isn't it?! Not half as charming as our mutual friend, give her a big hug from me next time you see her.
