Loss and Found

: Narrative Short
GENRE: Comedy
STATUS: Pre-Production


Who rescues who.


When filmmaker Jon Mancinetti lost his best friend, his dog Russell, it had quite an impact on his life. Loss and Found is a true to life re-telling of Jon’s story with a comedic twist. Jon decides to foster another dog from the shelter named Smokey and finds purpose in his life through saving the lives of more rescue dogs.


Writer director Jon Mancinetti found purpose in his life through saving the lives of homeless animals. Through fostering and adopting more rescue dogs, Jon learns there is a deeper meaning to his life. This short film will be comical and entertaining but most importantly raise awareness on issues surrounding rescue dogs like, shelter overcrowding, pit bull breed discrimination, and fostering and adopting.
