On a cold and snowy day, February 2, 2014; Kaboom (Kaboom du Loups du Soleil bred by Michael Ellis), a Belgian Malinois trained and handled by Michael Burkey of Michigan Dog Training in Plymouth, Michigan shot his final scene for the movie “Mr. What?” in Canton, Michigan.
The movie is about a man convicted of a crime he didn’t commit and how he copes upon his release from prison. During his adjustment to freedom, he befriends a dog (Kaboom) or we really should say the dog befriends the man and ends up being the hero in the movie. Earlier scenes were shot in late summer of 2013 in Tecumseh, Michigan which included an action scene where Burkey was not only the dog trainer on set but also a stunt man for one of the characters.Â The movie was written by the lead character of the film, Alan Maki and the Director is Shaun Maki of Panting Deer Productions LLC. Last year, they produced the “Singwalk Singer” that won five of five dove awards by the Dove Foundation.
“Mr. What?” is expected to earn several film awards and will make it’s debut in the fall of 2014.
