“Die Religion... ist das Opium des Volkes”
“Religion... is the opium of the people”

PRODUCTION NOTES

“From running over pedestrians whilst tearing through Leeds on a broken tricycle - cameraman strapped to the back - to knocking dents out of a car bonnet at 6 a.m. to the amusement of on looking taxi drivers, we begged, borrowed and stole all we could to make this film. DOGSPOTTING turned into an obsessive pursuit to recreate the opening scene of Danny Boyle's film frame-by-frame, whilst adding some talent of our own.

“Shot on a Sony FS-100 with selection of Zeiss primes. Edited on Final Cut Pro. A huge thanks to everyone who gave up their time, sleep and dietary requirements to make it happen.”
