Sequel to Wiener Dog Nationals, which also received initial financing on Kickstarter.  

We launched our first film "Wiener Dog Nationals," on Kickstarter back in 2012, and successfully launched the movie! The film went on to a number of successes in 2013 when it was released. It won The Audience Award and Outstanding Achievement in Filmmaking from the Newport Beach Film Festival, was the fastest selling movie in the history of the festival, and was accepted into The Hollywood Film Festival. It also became one of the top family movies on REDBOX for two months, and is currently available on NETFLIX streaming!

Now, as we move into the sequel, we are turning back to Kickstarter and the fans that helped us launch the first one, to ask for your involvement in getting the sequel, "Wiener Dog Internationals," made. All of our cast has expressed their intention to return, and the script is finished! We are shooting the film in just a few short weeks, and we're doing everything we can to get our budget raised!  Every cent raised on Kickstarter will be used to make our film better, whether that means better visual effects, an additional day of shooting with the dogs so we can get more animals into the movie, or a bigger star in one of the new roles, we will be making many strategic decisions as production advances that will use the money raised to  items that benefit the film the most.  

We met so many amazing people while doing the first film, and found a strong community of dog and film lovers who we now know as our friends and colleagues in the effort to get this project made. We invite you to join us on the sequel - and hope that you find the rewards being offered both unique and exciting.  As important as it is for us to raise money, it's even more important that you, our backers, are proud of supporting the film, and enjoy the rewards received.  We are especially excited about the many ways in which we want to get YOU involved in the movie. Everything from having your dog appear in the movie, to getting your own name on screen, to visiting the set!

We'll see you at the races!

Risks and challenges

Making a film is a huge undertaking - and it's not for the faint of heart. Wiener Dog Nationals hit a lot of problems during both production and in post, but in every instance our team dug in and worked through the issues to deliver the finished film. Many of these key crew members are returning to the sequel, and we will kick, scream, and push until the film is finished. A majority of the problems on a film can be solved with additional funds, and this is why our Kickstarter campaign is so important to the overall success of the film. It's your support that will help us overcome all obstacles. The more we raise, the better the film can be.

To get an idea of how the total budget of the film works in conjunction with this campaign, please see our FAQ.
