Blanche's Bichon Buzz

Following in the footsteps of acclaimed, indie, found-footage, big screen treatments (think "Blair Witch," "Unfriended," and "Paranormal Activity") comes the parody short "Blanche's Bichon Buzz." Buzzworthy Bichon Frise' Blanche DuBois Sharp accidentally unleashes her bladder on the pristine floor of Grandma's house. In order to escape her soap-and-watery fate, Blanche must outrun her pursuers. Her journey proves to be an authentic, cinematic, epic nail-biter . . . and possible head scratcher. However, the best cinema is that which makes one think . . . about adorable animals!

Important production note: "Blanche's Bichon Buzz" proudly shot on location at Grandma's actual house in New Orleans, Louisiana.
