The film will be co-produced by The Shop Productions, a new digital animation studio founded in Vancouver by former Mainframe Ent. President/CEO Ian Pearson and entertainment exec. Aaron L. Gilbert. The Shop’s operations will be based on Maya and Softimage XSI.

Written by Christopher Leone and Laura Harckom, the script has two time-traveling pooches trying to save their master and prevent the enslavement of all dogs.
