The Book of SAl Paradise, Or, How Deuteronomy Doomed the Dalmatians 

A film by Jack McCoy


"This was an assignment for my Directing 2 class at Columbia. It required 3 drafts of the treatment, two script drafts, a pre-production package, which consisted of a call sheet, a line script, a shot list, storyboards, and a 15 page director's breakdown, but instead, we didn't."
