Red Dog: a Filmic Legacy

“As in Red Dog, the soul of this film will be drawn out of the relationship between a community and a dog.”

“There is no doubt that Koko had an amazing following but as one experiences the interviews with people from all walks of life as they express what Koko meant to them, it will celebrate the impact that dogs have on our lives.”

– Nelson Woss, Producer

The documentary within the film

“Gracie Otto leads the creative team”

“…with liberal help and support from the original RED DOG team of myself, Kriv Stenders and Daniel Taplitz. We envision THE KOKO Story as a quintessentially Australian film with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humour.”

“Gracie’s adept ability to shoot in the documentary style with a low budget production methodology is a key element to the potential of the film.”

– Nelson Woss, Producer
