SITTER, THE is in the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival - it may not be a regular, endorsed title
Love the idea of The Sitter. Pets can definitely be a challenge to take care of. Animals can have temper tantrums and personalities just like humans. I wish that the story was developed a bit more. It's off to such a great start. For a student production, this has a lot going for it.

The storyline is about a unprepared teen aged girl who takes a babysitting job only to discover, once she arrives that it's for a dog, rather than a child.

I love this idea for a short film. Dog-sitting has to be as hard as babysitting. The girl doesn't ask a lot of questions during the initial call with the dog's owner and once she arrives, the owner tosses a leash, treats and toys at her and scrambles. Only when she goes into the house does she discover that she's dog-sitting, not babysitting. The lighting, sound and camerawork are all quite good. The costumes are believable. The setting of the house and yard are typical middle class and appropriate. The background music works well and the dog, Weezy Duke, is adorable and plays his role exceptionally well. The film is written, directed and acted by Dylan Duke who pulls the whole thing off quite well. My favorite scene is the ending when the Sitter brings the dog to the door to greet the owner as she arrives home. She acts as if nothing happened while the owner was away.

The message of this film is to ask more questions before accepting a job or assignment.

I give The Sitter 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it to ages 5 to 18, plus adults. It's a fun idea and kids will like the dog. This should play well at KIDS FIRST! Film Festivals. Reviewed by Selene W., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

A babysitter accidentally accepts a sitting job for a dog. Kids can be a nightmare, but so can pets...
