Statue, Screening and More...

Exciting things are happening in the world of Dennis lately and we thought we'd jump in and spread the news as of late:

First of all, a few months back we were approached by David Cusak, an extremely talented artist based out of Seattle, who was interested in designing and sculpting a true-to-form model of the big guy himself. After laboring away, and basing the model on the brilliant original DENNIS design of Tim Kent, David has delivered something that has truly blown us away. More photographs can be seen over at our production blog. If you like what you see (and, really, how could you not?), more of David's work can be found at The photographs of the statue were taken by equally talented Clayton Cusak. From all of us here at the Dennis team, we want to thank David for his contribution. Hopefully, this miniature Dennis will be accompanying us to wherever the film is shown.

Secondly, speaking of the film, we are quickly closing in on completion and the finish line is in sight. Color correction, editing, titles and ADR are locked. All that's left is little final polish before Dennis is ready to take on the world. We'll make sure to let you know via the various networks when everything is in the can (so to speak) and what the next steps are, which will be in just a few short weeks from now.

And lastly, we are in the preliminary stages of putting together a Portland area fundraiser for the few remaining costs that need to be attended to. With that said, if you haven't contributed to the film yet, there's still time to do so via PayPal where you can still get access to our various rewards and merchandise. As soon as the date and details are set, we'll make sure to let everyone know.

Official DENNIS teaser online NOW!

Though things have been a little quiet around DENNIS Headquarters in the last few months, we hope this makes it worth the wait and gives you an idea of everything that's been happening behind the scenes. Today we unveil the official Dennis teaser, giving everyone a first glimpse of the big man in action.

We're currently in the process of finishing up post-production on the film and plan on starting to submit to national and international festivals a little later this fall.

As far as rewards are concerned, keep an eye on your mailboxes in early 2011. There's still time to pledge your support to DENNIS (or up your pledge) and receive an awesome assortment of rewards. Your support will help to fund the film as we move further into post-production and festival submission. Visit the official Dennis website for complete details and instructions.

In the meantime, let us know what you think in the comments section and, just to be safe, you might want double check under your bed before falling asleep to tonight.
