DINOVILLE Adventures in Fond du Lac?

FOND DU LAC, Wis.--Dinosaurs are on the move in Fond du Lac where a 3-D animated movie series titled Dinoville Adventures: METEOR MADNESS is being made. The Dino Kids, Tommy, CJ and Amanda, are taking charge and on their way to stardom and fame!

"Movie-making doesn't happen everyday in Fond du Lac, so we're very excited about this project!" says Alan Hathaway, President/Owner of BrownBoots Interactive.

The 1/2 hour action-packed children's movie is a collaboration of efforts of individuals from across the country from Los Angeles, CA to Charlotte, NC and Fond du Lac, WI to Orlando, FL. The movie features dinosaurs with distinctively human qualities; it will be released on DVD and VHS in July of 2004. Children and adults both have a fascination with dinosaurs, so when tossing around the idea of moving into the realm of children's entertainment, the creators felt it was a natural fit.

METEOR MADNESS has generated world-wide interest in twenty-five countries, some of which include Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Brazil, China and others.

"The process of creating, developing and marketing this movie encompasses everything we love to do. In addition, we feel it's a good time to come out with something new, fresh and exciting in children's 3-D animation entertainment," says Tim Bowser, Director of Animation & Technical Director.

The basic plot centers on three young dinosaurs who discover that long-exiled evil Dr. Enos is planning on destroying Dinoville by re-directing a meteor using his recently invented super-powered electro-magnets. The three kids, CJ, Tommy, and Amanda, jump into action and, along with the help of the good-natured, wheel-chair-bound Professor Liddle, foil the evil plans and save the day. Like Veggie Tales or Monster's Inc., the movie will appeal to children and adults alike. There are plans to make additional Dino Adventures episodes.
