Regina brothers Adrian, Lowell Dean find different film success
One character scares adults, other comforts preschoolers
The Dean brothers are making a name for themselves in the world of film and television but with very different projects.
One creation is a cuddly monster who helps solve problems with the power of friendship. The other? A werewolf cop who tears apart bad guys.
"We've kind of both come at monsters in a very different way." - Adrian Dean
Lowell Dean found success after writing and directing the full-length feature Wolfcop which was released in the summer of 2014.
It's since played in film festivals around the world.
His younger brother Adrian is celebrating the launch of the second season of Doowett. It's an animated show geared to preschoolers.
The two minute shorts air on City TV and online.
"We've kind of both come at monsters in a very different way," said Adrian Dean.
The kids' animation genre appealed to him as he grew up on Disney and Warner Brothers cartoons, Adrian Dean said. Doowett, pronounced "duet," has no dialogue and uses music and actions to impart a lesson for kids.
"I thought it was a really fun challenge to tell a story that even a preschooler, a two-year-old, would understand," he said.
A screening of Doowett's second season will take place at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum on Sept. 8 at 10 a.m. CST.
