Short Film : Photographer Carli Davidson in Collaboration with Jonathan Bregel and Production Company Variable.
Singer & Score : Mayer Hawthorne
. . .
Shake off all the worries on your mind and smile! The dogs featured in SHAKE are simply here to offer you a couple minutes of wonder and laughter. SHAKE is based on a photography series of the same name by co-director Carli Davidson. The work was inspired by her own dog Norbert, a Dogue de Bordeaux whose drool she regularly cleans off walls due to his own frequent shaking.
In 2012 the Variable production company stumbled upon Carli Davidson's photo-series-gone-viral, "SHAKE", and immediately fell in love with the images of dogs that she was able to capture and contacted her to see if they could collaborate on a short film to bring her images to life.
If you are fans of the video, there is a very good chance you will enjoy the book as well. Check it out on the link below and please consider supporting our awesome friend Carli. This is her first book, and we are certain it won't be her last! ShakeTheBook.com
