SHORT FILM: Dropbear & Panda in JAG WAR

The Story Behind JAG WAR

Between shoots for a client, DB&P got some downtime in a $105,000 1971 Jaguar eType. So what did we do? Got into it over the correct pronunciation of the word ‘Jaguar’. It was a war of words. And in war there are no winners … only losers.

It’s seven minutes Jaguar didn’t pay for. Seven minutes they won’t ever see. Seven fun-filled minutes of Dropbear and Panda doing what we do best. Being ridiculous. Somewhat charming. And silly.

With zero budget, and time between shoots, we bring to you JAG WAR, the Trailer including the “In a world …” voice, and of course a silly Blooper Reel to round things out.

Huge thanks to Mulsanne Motorcar Company!

Dropbear Notes

Seriously. It is sooooo hard sometimes. OMG. Panda called it a JagWar for a week, and now she’s just calling it “the jaaaaag”. What the hell. I tried. Heathen.

Panda Notes

Watch the video. Notice how correct I am. #pandaisalwaysright #teampanda

About the Author:

Jennifer "Panda" MacLean recently won a “Best Guilty Pleasure” Award at the New York City International Film Festival during October's Fright Fest, and a Best Supporting Actress Award for a 17 minute monologue in “All the King’s Women” for Workshop Theatre. She also received a Best Actress nomination by Canadian Playwright Sharon Pollock at the Calgary One Act Play Festival. She has performed the Vagina Monologues twice but her parents only came the first time (wait… that was a poor choice of words.) She knew she made it "big" when a door girl and bouncer said to her, "HEY you're that chick in that thing! You were fantastic!" but still had to pay to get into the bar anyways. She likes robots. And turtles. And killer mutant robot turtles. And Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger II Tanks. And killer mutant robot turtles driving Panzerkampfwagen VI TIger II Tanks. And fluffy bunnies.
