New ‘Happy’ Video Featuring Humanized Dogs to Debut 9/ 8 .

‘Happy2 – Dog Days’ to Support Nonprofit Providing Service Dogs for People with Disabilities 

A press release has just been issued and we can’t wait until Monday!  Happy2 – Dog Days (www.happy2wb.com), a  new video set to the Pharrell Williams song “Happy,” featuring humanized dogs on vacation at Wrightsville Beach, will be released on September 8th.

Two local photographers/videographers, Ned Leary and Will Page, aim to support Canines for Service, an Wilmington-based organization committed to providing service dogs for people with disabilities nationwide.  They are releasing the fun on September 8th.  Here’s a teaser of what’s to come.

 

According to the press release, the video includes four main dogs and an appearance by a Vietnamese pot bellied pig.  After winning a trip to Wrightsville Beach, the video tracks the dogs as they visit the beach, go to bars, fish and kayak, activities that highlight the unique lifestyle there.

Happy2 – Dog Days also includes guest appearances by Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood, who were just here for Nicholas Sparks’ The Longest Ride. They filmed their fun scenes at the local favorite Buddy’s Crab Shack and Oyster Bar in Wrightsville Beach.

In the first local Happy  video, Leary and Page filmed local residents as they danced around Wrightsville Beach. Now they decided to do a sequel. They wanted to create something even bigger that included more dancing. After filming  some furry friends for one scene of the new video, the pair decided the entire film needed to be about dogs.

Director Ned Leary decided to kick it up a notch and use the fun to support our local non-profit, Canines for Service.

  The filming duo completed the video in six weeks, without any financial backing and all on their own time. Leary, Page and the dogs’ owners/handlers were all previously unknown to one another before filming and include a waitress, a doctor, a premature infant ICU nurse and a Coast Guard instructor.

  “Once we decided to shoot the entire video around the idea of dogs visiting Wrightsville Beach, we knew we wanted to highlight the work of a great service dog organization,” Leary said. “Canines for Service does such wonderful work for people with disabilities in the state, and we hope Happy2 – Dog Days will introduce people to the powerful work they do in helping people with disabilities live with greater independence.”

For nearly 20 years, Canines for Service has helped people with disabilities live with greater independence. The organization helps select and train dogs for service.

So last week, I hinted at some really cool construction going on for MAX STEEL.  Well, my sources are telling me Ideal Cement is gonna be the Max Steel Headquarters.  It feels like TMNT all over again! And it looks like director Stewart Hendler is confirming the location.

I chatted via twitter with Ana Villafane over the weekend and she is pumped about playing Sydney.  Ben Winchell, who will be playing Max McGrath is gonna have one hell of a wardrobe, one piece in particular.

MAXSTEEL_CASTWriter Christopher Yost was doin’ a little bragging last week, saying “Know what else is ridiculously awesome? The suit for the Max Steel movie.”  Okay, seriously, I am starting to geek out about this flick.  Ahhhh! Let’s go into production already!

Under the Dome is headed to Southport today for a little church scene.   A lot of cast member on set today including Dean Norris, Mike Vogel, Rachelle LeFevre, and Eddie Cahill to name a few.
