There’s been a buzz growing steadily around the music scene in a small Westchester, NY community. The local high school hosts what are now a regular “Open Mic” Nights and ever larger handfuls of hopefuls come out to play each time. The musicians are young, but the chops are there, and parents, teachers and townsfolk are remarkably supportive.
In what, with hope, is the first of a series, this initial show focuses on the two student Co-President / musicians and the Faculty person who brought the “Open Mic Night” series to life.
Shot in the Summer of 2004 on location in a quaint New Jersey hamlet, this features some beautiful Harleys and among the most vicious canine attack scenes ever captured.
The lead here is a first-time actor who put in great performances over several days of shooting. A more-seasoned talent in the supporting role helps pull the thing together. Good editing, a great soundtrack (Paolo Conte; The Jazz Messengers; Ozzie Osbourne), and some laughs make “Beware of Dog” 8 well-spent minutes.
Plot Outline: The Biker Rally’s back in town – again – and The Man can’t handle the noise.
The current cut is available at Google.
We’ve taken up this project again in the hopes of sewing up the last the last of the hanging threads.
