Title of film: Subaru, Camping
Director: Hoffman Brothers
Production Company: Harvest
The Hoffman Brothers' doggy quartet for Subaru

We read that you two began your directing career by filming your dog Bingo as kids with a video camera that your father had bought you. So what’s changed since then?

Bingo died and now we have our own camera.

How does the balance of power work when you’re filming? Do you have clearly defined separate roles or do you have turns at being captain?

Mark went to film school in Germany and has a very formal film background, and I studied theater and was an actor, so we definitely have our strengths, but at the same time we are brothers and can communicate telepathically or through uncomfortably clearing our throats.

We know the cliche about working with kids and animals – what were the major challenges of the Subaru production?

Getting the dogs to keep their paws on the wheel and stop checking their cell phones.
