What would the Tribeca Film Festival be without Ed Burns? The independent filmmaker has screened six of his films at the event (last year he closed the festival with “Newlyweds”) and this year he’s back for a seventh time with the world premiere of his short, “Doggy Bags.”
The project is the result of the 2011 American Express My Movie Pitch competition, which allows one winning contestant to have their idea made into a short. This year’s film comes courtesy of winner Susan Brennan, who pitched a story about a young man who suspects his girlfriend is hiding a secret after she routinely orders massive amounts of food to go.
Ahead of its premiere on April 20, Indiewire is pleased to offer you an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of “Doggy Bags.” Take a look at Burns and his stars Matt Bush, Mike McGlone and Daniela Pineda in action!
