The Dog Art Director
So I put my dog Nunzi on this stool and start telling him a good idea I have for our portrait. He rudely interrupts me, leans in and says…“Boring. I got a better idea. I’ll art direct this sucker. Watch.” And he proceeds to “direct” the shot. When he finishes stomping me and has my head flat on the stool where his butt used to be, he says… “Perfect. Me in a fine vanquishing pose and your goofy face on the seat. Good boy. That’s a wrap!” He mischievously cackles, the crew laughs at me and I’m off to see the chiropractor again.
