Private Project

Your Dog Likes Me More Than You

Petey a Brooklyn dog walker, struggles with mental illness and impending homelessness. He aspires to make a better life for himself as a writer. His client Conrad is a literary agent but uninterested.

Petey decides to submit his latest work in spite of Conrad's disinterest. What follows is his dissent into illness and homelessness.

"When we come across a homeless person, we usually meet them too far down the road of mental illness. Your Dog Likes Me More Than You gives us a glimpse into the beginning moments when things could have been different if someone like you or me cared." ~Film Threat
