Over the weekend I attended a fun event and screening for this new 20th Century Fox movie. It was held at The Grove in Los Angeles. There were lots of dogs in attendance for the afternoon events and the nighttime outdoor movie screening. There was fun for all ages!
I got to photograph and speak with the director and canine and human stars on the red carpet. The dogs were adorable! After attempting to photograph these active pups on the red carpet without getting leashes or their handlers legs in the pictures, I have even more respect for the professionals who made this movie. The dogs are very well trained, but I’m sure it was still difficult to film them.
The Director (Michael Damian, who you may recognize from his many years on The Young and the Restless) was very personable and enjoyed the fun and challenges of making a movie with dogs and children. Brodie (Travis Turner) had fun making the movie and hanging out with his canine co-stars. Lauren Lavoie is the voice actor for the very cute Fuschia. I expect we’ll be hearing more from her!
The movie is fun for kids and adults. The scenes with the dentures and the goggles make me laugh every time I think of them!
