A Dog Tries (and Fails) to Be Helpful in This Whimsical Short Film

Why Watch? This short film from Alec Birkbeck is a punchline-driven adventure that would feel at home in the 1940s if not for the modern camera work and slick visuals. In Stop the Dog, the anti-Lassie is trying to draw a biker’s attention to something that’s happened at the bottom of a great hill. He unfortunately succeeds.

Fun and breezy at only 2 minutes, it’s hard to deny a delightful flick that stars an actor named Harvey Waggington.

What Will It Cost? About 2 minutes.
