Imagine finding over 100 Tripod dogs who want to be movie stars via the Social networking phenomenon Twitter. Well imagine no more… it’s happened.
Watch this trailer and be in awe of these incredible dogs…
Over one hundred 3 legged dogs from all around the world have applied to play the role of “Scrap” in Geoff Talbot’s up and coming movie “Lucky & Rich” a romance/tragedy shooting in Prague in February 2010.
A simple message was sent out in early May… “looking for a #3-legged dog to make into a movie star” And since that time tripods of all shapes and sizes have been putting their best three legs forward.
On his blog Geoff Talbot says “There is a wonderful thing about a three legged dog, they don’t spend their whole life looking for the leg that they lost. They just keep on hopping from person to person looking to make friends where-ever they go.”
To cast the champion tripod to play Scrap Talbot is planning to select 12 candidates to take part in a unique interactive online competition called “3-Legged Dog Idol” His technology partners in this innovative competition are Video platform providers en2go and Digital Stream.
Geoff Talbot is an actor and a filmmaker. In a previous life he was a Veterinary surgeon. He runs a small New Zealand based Production company called Evoke Pictures.
He is currently in Los Angeles until the 21st of July and is available to do media. He can be contacted via email.
Good luck to any Dogsters who enter.
