DIRECTED BY JASON REITMAN, STARRING: Jason Carpenter, with Jeff Witzke
One man's quest to save his fish. Starring Jason Carpenter, Mary Jo Smith, Jeff Witzke and Heather Brown.
Co-Produced by Atom Films and Ford (and oh look - the, at the time, new Ford Focus is an integral part of the short!) this is the third of Jason’s short films.
A little bit of trivia - I was not originally cast in this short. But after the actor pulled out last minute, Jason called and asked me to play the Pet Shot Dictator. I was happy to oblige and I think everyone was excited with the outcome: A fun, fishy short film.
