Trailer and Rough Cut of the Film!
Sorry for the delay in communication regarding the movie. We have been hard at work getting the film to completion. We ended production being over budget, so we have been spending a good amount of time trying to raise additional funds, and get the film through post.
We are very excited to get the film out there for everyone to see! Making a movie is a long process, and we're not through it yet, but boy are we getting close!
We did shoot the movie! That part's done, and it was a blast! It was long days, but so many wonderful doggies and their owners showed up to support the movie! It was really amazing. Some of the days went on 15 hours! The film had a lot of challenges, but I am really happy to say, we got through a lot of difficult days, and the film that emerged is so wonderful. Everything from the acting, to the editing is really making the film shine! (And of course the dogs were all WONDERFUL!)
I have so many stories from the set, but not enough time to share them all right now! We are trying to raise another $50,000 to get through sound mixing and color correction on the movie. Since that number is probably too high for us to hit on Kickstarter, we are aiming to raise another $10,000 via Kickstarter, with a new campaign, that will help us to at least do all the color correction work needed to make the film really pop! The rest we will be raising outside of the site, starting with half-units in the ownership of the Movie's LLC, at $5,000 each.
One of the coolest things we are planning to give away in our post-production Wiener-extravaganza is a sneak peek at the trailer! That will be coming soon! And let me tell you, once you see the teaser, you'll be so excited to see the movie, every day without it will feel longer, until finally, the film will arrive, and your whole world will brighten again!
Until then... stay well, and thank you again for all your support!
