Puppies & Tiaras

The first short film ever created by Why Wait Productions in 2012 was a parody of the hit TV show Toddlers & Tiaras. After releasing Puppies & Tiaras on YouTube it got the attention from a production company out of New York to showcase the comedy short film on Animal Planet. Jahnnalee couldn't afford lights for the short film so she made the director call to shoot everything during magic hour within 5 days. Puppies & Tiaras is 19 minutes long. She directed 22 human actors, 8 dog actors, had 6 crew members and did this all within 5 hours of magic hour time.
