One Day in the life of Boris the Malibu dog

This was a special project that pulled on my heartstrings and will pull on yours too.

Bella Films was asked to create a short music film that would soon memorialize Boris’ life. He was a loving, gentle, happy, well-behaved Bernese Mountain dog that lived the purrrfect life on the beach of Malibu with his human companion Seth.

It’s difficult to say much else. When I watch this film, it makes me both sad and happy. I’m a huge animal lover and it’s hard not to fall in love with Boris the minute you meet him. While we were editing this, I knew the impending news would come soon. Boris passed away about a month after this was filmed during the editing process.

It’s a humbling reminder that documenting anyone’s life, creating cherished visual memories of our beloved humans and pets, is truly a blend of both honor and tender responsibility.

I’m so grateful to do what I do for a living.
