Hello and thank you for checking out the PRODUCTION page. While everyone sees the work done by the actors, there are always TONS of people working in the background making the film a reality. Even though February’s Dog is a smaller, independent film, there are still many, many friends, family, strangers, and businesses that have been INSTRUMENTAL in making this film a reality. And often at their own expense, or more specifically at no expense to February’s Dog. AMAZING!! So please take some time and go through this page – its a long one, but well worth the read so you too can get an appreciation that it “took a village” to raise this movie. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

One of the great powers of a movie is its ability to link up emotion creating music with the movies story. Music ties a movie together like no other element. In the creation of February’s Dog – a film about Albertans, by Albertans – it was very important for Paul J Chinook to incorporate local Alberta based music into the film. Check back soon as we will provide a list of these awesome songsmiths and their amazing additions to the film. Please check them all out.
