Gopher in the Movies?

Living in the Twin Cities metro has offered Carla and I the opportunity to meet and become friends with a large array of wonderful people. One very important aspect of our diverse social group are the number of artists we have had the privilege to know, an opportunity that has been presented to us due to the areas rich theatrical presence. This is a shout out to our friends at Expensive Wino Productions, who gave Gopher a new adventure recently when he was cast along with his little brother Squirrel in their upcoming release "War of the Worlds?" We worked with both of them on the speak command so they could be filmed barking at an intruder for the film. Once on location the boys let their new star status go to their heads and did not perform as well as expected.

  1. Hey, they did just fine. It was a new experience for all of us (them being in a film, me directing dogs).

    The final product works very well.

    1. We will work on them, they need to improve for future casting calls.
