“MAKING FRIENDS IS EASY… KEEPING THEM IS IMPOSSIBLE”
A little while back I was sent the first official first trailer for My Pet Dinosaur and I wont lie, I was smitten with the movie. Pete’s Dragon had somewhat restored my faith in the family driven CGI animal movie and My Pet Dinosaur looks set to keep my faith going. So it was nice to receive some more news about the upcoming movie in the form of an announcement on the theme tune.
LOVE CHILD actress records theme song to new Australian film MY PET DINOSAUR
Here’s the low-down:
Little Monster Productions today announced the upcoming release of the title track to the upcoming family film, My Pet Dinosaur.
The original song, titled “Only Human” was written and performed by Meghan Drummond and produced by Pete Drummond, both siblings of the Director, Matt Drummond. My Pet Dinosaur is the second feature for Drummond who is renowned for his work as an Emmy Award winning, Visual Effects Supervisor.
Meghan Drummond features on the television series, ‘Love Child’ and performs internationally with Australia’s top entertainment agency; The Groove Academy. Pete Drummond is a 2008 ARIA Hall of Fame Inductee and a member of the legendary Australasian band Dragon.
Matt states, “Bringing the musical talents of my brother and sister into this part of the filmmaking process was both rewarding and enjoyable. The song really highlights both their individual talents and showcases a powerful track for the film’s heroes.”
In a nod to the film’s nostalgic flavour, the track has been infused with signature sounds of the 80’s. The song, which serves to both heighten the film’s theme’s and action is one of the final creative elements to fall into place during post-production.
So there is the trailer, now for a quick synopsis:
The film follows an unlikely friendship between a boy and a dinosaur in a troubled town. My Pet Dinosaur, roars into Australian theatres on April 25. In line with the release, the soundtrack will be available the same day.
This is the second feature for Drummond, renowned for his work as an Emmy Award winning, Visual Effects Supervisor. His previous film Dinosaur Island (2014), was nominated for a 2015 AEAF Award for Feature Film Animation.
A cross between E.T and Monster’s Inc, My Pet Dinosaur fixes on the unlikely friendship between a boy and a dinosaur. Cast includes Jordan Dulieu, Annabel Wolfe, Christopher Gabardi (The Thorn Birds: The Missing Years) and recognizable Aussie actor Tiriel Mora (Farscape).
