Hey everyone! I don`t know if you guys remember, but one day I talked about the short movie “The Nightmare At school”, and I was talking about what it was about and what was happening. Well in class we had to go back to the site and listen to another short film. This time, I went and listened to the movie “Get A Job!” This movie was made by Brad Caslor, in 1985.
It basically talks about a dog that needs to get a job and he has this vision of what bad things could happen. I think the director was trying to show us that it is normal to be really nervous before getting a job, but it is still important to stay calm and normal. Throughout the film we see the dog going to different job interviews and one time he’s all small and way too quiet, the other time he is mean and big, and the last time he is overconfident. The dog was never being himself and he was always being rejected for it. The employers didn’t like his attitude, and so they didn’t take him for the job.
This short film is basically a musical. There is singing and dancing the whole time and they don’t talk a lot. A part that I found a little bit confusing was the beginning. There were big dogs singing a song about getting a job, and we could see the dog going into stores to get jobs, and he would never get picked. Then when he went back home, his wife seemed to be leaving him, and then he goes on the sofa, watches television and falls asleep. During he is asleep, it actually is him dreaming of what it happening.
I really liked the movie and I think some of you guys should go check it out! It’s only 10 minutes 35 seconds long! Here is the link for the video!! Hope you enjoy.
