In the Hollywood Area?
Hi, my name is John and I live here in the Southern California city of West Hollywood where I recently self-published a YA sci-fi/fantasy novel called DOGWORLD, about a faraway planet of intelligent dogs and cats, featuring a Doberman Pinscher named "Axis."
I joined the forum today because I'm looking to create a thirty-second video teaser to get the word out, but have been unable to find the right dog to star in it. It seems Dobermans are a lot less popular breed than they were when I was a kid in the 1970s. Because I work in the TV biz I know that professional movie and TV dogs cost upwards to $2000 per day. That's way out of my budget, but I can pay up to $500.
So, if anyone has a good-natured adult male Doberman Pinscher with cropped ears and want to see him on YouTube in a video that will hopefully go viral, please contact me and I'll explain everything. But in case you're curious, no acting chops are required, no stunts either. If you've seen the Two Dogs Dining video on YouTube, you'll understand the concept. Only mine will be shot in the somewhat more sophisticated green screen techniques.
I know this request--and my joining here--is a little unorthodox because I don't own a Doberman, but I created an interesting character that addresses the breed's oftentimes misunderstood reputation that I think you would all appreciate.
