Here’s a link to the trailer for Puppy Love, premiering in Riverside, California on September 12th, 2014 at the Tri Stone Theater, on Limonite Avenue. Come to the premier if you’re in the area. There will be other short films premiering that night, as well.
Puppy Love is a short film that I was recently cast in to play an older man that’s never quite gotten over his first love. His puppy love. He’s lived his life as a singer/songwriter, and has fans that want to see him, and hear his songs, but he stays secluded behind the closed gates to his estate, living alone, except for the companionship of his little dog, Rhonda.
The emptiness in his soul and spirit, and memory of his lost first, and only love, fuel his lyrics and music. His fans feel his loss, because they’ve felt the loss of love too. They remember the one that got away, the same way that he does. S o they listen to his music, and buy his records, and come to his concerts to see him. But at the end of each day, and night, he’s alone, with only his puppy to keep him company.
He remembers the young man he was when he fell in love with her. Barely in high school. He could tell that she liked him too. She trusted him. She could talk to him, and smile, and even put her arm around him from time to time. But he was so shy. Why couldn’t he have told her sooner, before that other guy swept her away ? Why couldn’t he have told her sooner how he felt, and given her the locket that he had inscribed for her ?
Would he ever be able to get over her? To forget her, and a love he felt so long ago, and still hadn’t been able to put behind him?
Maybe the film holds the answer. Come to the premier to find out.
