Sigur Rós Members Confirm They Produced ‘Three Dogateers Save Christmas’ | Music News
Sigur Rós members Georg Holm and Orri Dyrason have confirmed they are the producers for The Three Dogateers Save Christmas, a 2014 movie about three talking dogs who take it upon themselves to save Christmas from burglars.
In an interview with The Grapevine, Dyrason confirmed their involvement
“us serious artist types all banded together to produce a talking dog movie”—which came about when a childhood friend was looking to invest in a film. “Our dream was to get Chevy Chase to star in it. You know, a Christmas movie with Chevy Chase—it can’t go wrong.”
He continued: “We were very stringent, pinching pennies at every opportunity,” he said. “If you watch the movie, you’ll notice that the dogs’ mouths are sometimes obscured by strategically placed Christmas tree branches when they’re supposed to be talking—that’s because the budget for the animation software stuff that makes it look like the dogs’ mouths are moving in synch with the voice acting ran out, and we refused to raise it. There was lots of stuff like that going on.”
“We were completely serious about the production,” he said. “It was an investment. We did it to make some money. It’s not as if we place any kind of meaning or importance in that film. We didn’t foster any artistic ambitions or anything like that. It’s a talking dog movie, you know. We just wanted to make some money, and we worked hard to meet our goal.”
