So, here's the deal... In "Wiener Dog Nationals - The Movie," the main dogs all have names, but the other dogs that are running along side them do not. At the script level this hasn't mattered, but as we move into production it's just more fun to give all the dogs names. And since we love our fans and want to make this a fun, communal experience we've added a new category to our Kickstarter campaign! NAME A DOG!
That's right. You can select the name of one of the dogs running in the race beside the main characters.*
These names may show up in a number of different places!
First, they'll be on our production boards, our call sheets, and other production paperwork.
Second, the names may be said in the races, while the announcer rattles off what's happening. (For example, in a scene where Shelly our main dog, takes the lead, "Fireside and Tall Water take a splash while Shelly takes the lead!" sounds a lot better than "Dog #1 and Dog #2 take a splash while Shelly takes the lead!")
Third, the names will show up in the end credits. (i.e. Fireside: played by Buddy)
Fourth, let's not forget bragging rights!
Friend: How was your weekend?
You: So , busy. I had to clean the house, and name a dog for a movie.
Friend: Wow! You're involved in a movie?
You: Well, I don't like to brag, but yes... yes, I am.
* Dog names must be family friendly and approved by Producer of the film.
