Adam Sloves returned home to West Hartford over the Columbus Day weekend with a few friends – 21 fellow Emerson College film students. Sloves was directing his senior thesis project, “My Kid’s Dog.” Emerson College is known for a who’s who of Hollywood notables including Jay Leno, Dennis Leary, the producers and creators of TV classics “Friends,”  “Will & Grace,” and more. Hartford native Norman Lear, creator of “All In The Family,” also attended Emerson.

“I picked West Hartford for two reasons – a trapped location feel of a suburban community and, of course, no location fees, with thanks to my parents and grandmother,” Sloves said. Filmed over three days, the production featured a crew of 21, five West Hartford locations, 6 a.m. crew calls, a ‘66 vintage Lincoln Continental convertible, a dog and a shovel (sorry, no plot reveal here).The production employed “full industry standards,” Sloves said – complete with make-up, digital imaging technician, director of photography, script supervisor, grips, gaffer, sound and even its own caterer.

“With so many variables of weather, traffic, transportation and a temperamental dog there is no best way to make this film, just do our best and we’ll see what happens,” Sloves said.
