Jake and Jasper: A Ferret Tale

April 23, 2012

Directed by Alison Parker     

Starring Connor Stanhope, Andrew Jackson, Nina Hagerty, Blu Mankuma, and Falcor the Ferret

Jake and Jasper: A Ferret Tale is a short film about a young boy who is having a hard time coping with the death of his mother.  Then Jake (Connor Stanhope, Smallville) receives a gift from his sister, Jessie (Nina Hagerty)    a precocious ferret he names Jasper.  Suddenly Jake isn’t so lonely anymore, as he developes an unbreakable bond with his new fuzzy buddy.  That is until his special friendship garners unwanted attention at school, and gets him in more trouble than ever before.  When his father (Andrew Jackson) decides that it’s time to separate the boy from his pet, Jake takes Jasper and runs away.  As the pair tries to get through the woods to Jake’s sister’s house, they encounter dangers that threaten to keep them apart forever.

Falcor the ferret makes the finest fuzzy leading man in Jake and Jasper.

Family friendly movies are hard to come by these days… family movies with a real live ferret just being himself, well, that’s one in a million.  Hollywood and the media have both played a part in the past in misconstruing the nature of domesticated ferrets, so a film such as Jake and Jasper is a welcome respite in today’s cinematic offerings.  Those unfamiliar with the personality of ferrets can get a small taste by watching this movie, and those already won over by the charismatic little critters will be tickled to see an authentic fuzzy in action on screen.

If you are looking for an endearing movie that will be equally adored by people of all ages, Jake and Jasper will be an excellent choice.  It is a refreshing change of pace from today’s CGI heavy, unbelievably graphic films.

Still not sure this is the movie for you?  Check out the trailer:

    Cool! Another blog entry on Jake and Jasper! What do you think about the new project? She’s working on a full length feature film, The Ferret Squad. =)

    I’m really excited about it! Some of my fuzzies were in the promo video for it. I’m working on the next post which will be about The Ferret Squad and the fight to legalize them in Cali. 🙂
