Film producers want to see you and your dog

AUSTRALIA'S Red Dog Koko left such a lasting impression, he's inspired another film.

The new film's producers have called on the public to send photos of themselves with their dogs to kokopictures@gmail.com.

Producer Nelson Woss told Neil Mitchell from 3AW's Mornings with Neil Mitchell that the film wasn't just about Koko, it was about all dogs and why we love them.

"We've included two things, a poster and quite a complicated visual effect shot at the end of the movie that will incorporate people and their dogs," he said.

"I'm not looking for professional photos, I'm looking for ordinary Australian people who love their dogs and have got a terrific picture which expresses how much the dog and the owner love each other, if you've got one of those and its high resolution, send it to that email address and I promise you I'll put it in the movie."

Koko, the star of the acclaimed film Red Dog which was released in 2011, passed away not long after the film was released.
