Do you all recall my trip to Vancouver last year? It was very hush hush for a while but I did mention that I was collecting some cool behind the scenes pictures and clips on a new family film that is releasing now! I sadly had way more footage but my computer crashed and was replaced prior to this post but I was able to recover some of the goods!
Who remembers Airbud? Come on you know you do! The movie that made everyone and anyone want a golden retriever? It really couldn't have just been me.
The same team of producers from Airbud and Air buddies have produced a new movie that made its debut to Blu Ray DVD this week. The movie is called Russell Maddness!
To sum it up ---
"RUSSELL MADNESS is a exciting, action-packed adventure introduces ‘Russell,’ a talking (and costume-wearing) Jack Russell Terrier who accidentally becomes a professional wrestling superstar, on the way to discovering the true power…of family. "
As someone who got the jist of the movie first hand on set I must say. Its definitely a family film I'd recommend. There is comedy, realistic family drama as well as a bunch of furry friends which instantly had my attention. The warm loving moral of the movie was literally in the air during each take of every scene.
Here are some behind the scenes photos.
The set was beautiful. It resembled a classic old hollywood theater.
I along with the other media correspondence sat aside and watch easily over 50 takes of the same 30 second scene. The attention to detail behind a movie is no joke guys!
My favorite actor or shall I say actress in the movie had to be Crystal the monkey!
Amazingly patience and so well trained.
You could say things got a little personal between both of us.
You might recognize this smart girl from The Hangover?
Meeting her was a dream come true. All of the actors and actresses * listed below * were extremely passionate about the film and it definitely showed through each take. If you are interested in seeing Russell Madness please refer to the links below. I promise you and your little ones won't regret it!
