April 17, 2012 - PRLog -- Kevin and DeAnna Cooper are ex-studio executives that recently signed a distribution deal for their independent 3D family comedy I HEART SHAKEY, the first film from their company Amarok Productions.  The first independent film to be shot entirely in stereoscopic 3D, it is paving a new path for other filmmakers.  To better understand what the Coopers have accomplished after leaving careers in the Hollywood studio system, you should know that 95% of independent films never make it to the marketplace. An even higher percentage of films never get a theatrical release. This is the story of “the little engine that could....”

I HEART SHAKEY, was shot in the Chicago area and stars Steve Lemme (Broken Lizard comedian, Super Troopers, Beerfest), Steve Guttenberg (Police Academy franchise), Beverly D’Angelo (National Lampoon’s Vacation movies), Alfonso Arau (Three Amigos), 12 year old acting phenom Rylie Behr and a rescue dog named Ebony. The movie also touts some of the hottest actors and comedians in Chicago including Andy St. Clair and Greg Holloman (of Second City fame) and award winning stage actress Janet Ulrich Brooks. A full list of credits can be found at their IMDb listing.

I HEART SHAKEY tells the story of a widower, his 9 year-old daughter and their devoted mutt Shakey. The film follows this family of three as they move from a small town to Chicago and are forced to get rid of their dog, who wreaks havoc in their new apartment building. It is a simple heart warming story geared toward kids and families that focuses on the importance of loyalty and keeping the family together. It has recently been approved by the Dove Foundation for family viewing. The teaser trailer is now live on their Kickstarter page.

Talent from the film will attend their red carpet premiere on June 13 in Chicago.  Phase 4 will release I HEART SHAKEY theatrically and On Demand June 29 with the DVD arriving in stores late August.  Spotlight Pictures will handle international distribution.
