We have already filmed a sweet and fun comedy that is sure to delight dogs and most people, but we need your support to finish post-production!!
This awkward love story is about Dudley, a bored and communication-inhibited man in his mid 30s. One day, in the attempt to end his own life, he thinks he hears his white basset hound, Maximo, tell him he shouldn't go through with it.
Stunned and rejuvenated with a new and exciting purpose in life, Dudley tries to get his dog to talk again. But, he must go to uncomfortable lengths to accomplish this, namely, talking to a girl.
PAUL NEWMAN, THE DOG
We had an extraordinary experience working with Paul Newman, the dog actor, on this film. He and his trainer, Karen Wells, are a superb team. They are one of the best in the business and stars in the making. Not only that, Paul Newman is a rescue. You can read all about their story on their website, www.whitebassethound.com.
With this project, we also want to draw attention to rescued animal shelters, without which we never would have had the incredible opportunity of working with Paul Newman, the wonder dog. A few years ago, Paul Newman was found tied and starved in an abandoned garage. He was rescued by Suzanne Fitch of Mid-Atlantic Basset Hound Rescue, where he was matched with his wonderful trainer and caretaker, Karen. He is just one of many great successes of animal rescue. Please check out their website!

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
We are currently in post-production and have spent all our hard-earned bucks on the actual filming. Now we need to find some enthusiastic contributors to help us realize our post-production; We need sound designers, sound editors, composers, and other very important post-production expenses and materials.
The post-production process is an integral part of bringing a story to an audience. It can make or break your project. And we have an AWESOME project.
We've done the groundwork, now we just need to put on the finishing touches. This is where you come in. Please check out the rewards and help us bring Dudley and Maximo's world to life.
On Kickstarter, you only receive the donations if you reach your ultimate goal. Help me reach my goal! Speaking of which, our goal is $3000, but we definitely need more than this, so even if we're above our goal, please don't hesitate to donate!
If you can't donate money, you can support this project by spreading the word through blogs, tweets, facebook, or your choice of social media!
