âMaking A Doggone Adventure was truly one of the creative thrills of my careerâ, says director, and co-producer, Tony Randel. âDirecting these five “little rascals” was fun, hilarious, sometimes frustrating, and always a hoot!âÂ A Doggone Adventure takes âJust Jesse the Jackâ to a place heâs never been before thanks to the movieÂ making magic of the Team 5 crew. Co-producer and special effects guru Chuck Cirino explains âI wasÂ inspired to create a rich visual effects world that the kids and dog could interact with effortlessly. ToÂ achieve this I tapped into my many years of enjoying classic science fiction films, and a childlike sense ofÂ wonder.â
Composer Chuck Cirino also wrote the original music score sharing “For this film I wanted to depict aÂ feeling of authority, humanity, awe and power. In my mind this would seamlessly enhance the visualÂ effects design I created.”
Sound Designer Patrick Giraudi says, âThe drone scene was challenging as the toy we used was CGI so I had the idea to use a broken 1 inch cooling fan and a can of compressed air. By spraying the air at theÂ right angle, I was able to get different sounds that represented the speeds of the small blades to make aÂ believable flying drone.â
âMany people say to never work with animals, but the professionalism of âJust Jesse the Jackâ and hisÂ trainer, Heather Brook, never ceases to amaze meâ says producer Alexia Cirino. âThey are an absolute pleasure to work with!â
A Doggone Adventure has something for viewers of every age. The clever script by Jim Wynorski pays homage to dozens of Team 5âs Hollywood favorites from Charlie Chaplinâs Modern Times to
Woody Allenâs Sleeper, as well as I Love Lucy and Dirty Harry. Parents and grandparents watching theÂ film with their children will be entertained and delighted to find all the famous movie and TV showreferences hidden in the film.
Jesse the Jackâs trainer, Heather Brook says, “Jesse is my best friend, heart dog, and constant companion.Â He is my first and only dog. He loves working on set and hams it up for the camera, with a big smile on his face. He is so in tune with me, it’s like we are speaking the same language. We love working together,Â and had so much fun on set. Everyone on the production was wonderful and a joy to work with.”
âWe are thrilled to be working with Team 5 and the ever-charismatic âJust Jesse the Jackâ once againâ,says Vision Films CEO, Lise Romanoffâ. âA Doggone Adventureâ is a film for the whole family to enjoyÂ together. In addition to the release of this film on March 20th, we will be bringing back all 3 movies in aÂ DVD box set this coming holiday season.â
