Two well-established canines engage in a battle of intellectual capacity, racing against time and breaking all rules.
This film was dreamt-up after glancing, in succession, at a chess set, at two doilies, and a dog. It features Thea and Zeus, two intellectual canines who have found themselves facing off in an ‘epic’ chess match – one that will go down in history.
The main goal: to have fun while making the film, while also attempting to utilize the accessible editing software to create a video that engages its audience.
Filming was done primarily by Francis Sharp, with some dog-training/wrangling assistance from her friend Leila.
Only one pair of glasses were broken during filming, a feat that both Francis and Leila consider impressive.
