Awkward Haiku (tv) Ep. 20 - Dog Walk

Youtube link

Dog Walk--the story of one man, one dog, and two pieces of music. Why does he walk the dog? Does he dream of Brazil? What's the connection here between this film and De Sica's "Umberto D."? Both feature a man and his dog, both feature the world pressing down, and both are done in style, with the least amount of money possible.

This was shot and edited 6 years ago, by the Awkward Haiku (tv) team. One night we shot it (with no real plan), the next day was a snow day so we edited it (also with no real plan). We transferred it from cheap camera to Final Cut Express, back to tape, then to a Video CD, where it languished in the vault until just now.

Now, enjoy it in its original format. No changes have been made--this is as close to the experience as you'll get to watching the film 6 years ago.
