What is the factory of the future? What does the worker of the future do? And, what role does the dog play?
Synopsis "The factory of the future will have only two employees: a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment." - Warren Bennis Our digital short brings life to the irony and humour of this quote. The audience joins a newly employed factory worker in the course of a day in which a series of events leads to a startling epiphany – his job isn’t quite what he thinks it is. Through the use of humour and irony, our audience will experience and share the factory worker’s profound realization. In the future, the impact of automation on individuals and society will be profound, which begs the following questions: What is the factory of the future? What does the worker of the future do? And, what role does the dog play?
The core part of our team has worked together on multiple projects. There is a high level of comfort and confidence based on personal relationships and experience. PL/Director/Writer Wayne Hoecherl is excited to meet other talented people as well!

A companion at Joe's new job at the factory. He's friendly and playful, but perhaps not predictable. Perhaps he has a job at the factory as well. Played by Enzo - a beautifully-behaved, military-trained guard dog.
Joe and the dog are the primary characters, however, there is a point in story where Joe sees something that changes his understanding of who he is and what his role is at the factory.
