"I know just what you're thinking Sprinkles!"
Gas Station Attendant, Zombie Abomination - IZM
Sprinkles is (of course) not a real dog, but a man in a suit.
The man in the suit’s
name is Joe, who also happens to be Digital Visual
Effects Director and the Blood,
Bladder and Gore Effects Supervisor.
We let him play the role of Sprinkles just to,
well, you know, sort of
“throw him a bone” as they say.
More on Sprinkle's role in Zombie
Abomination - The Italian Zombie Movie
(which may include some plot SPOILERS) is below.
In the film, Sprinkles has a
complex role even by animal actor standards.
Sprinkles wholeheartedly befriend the rather unlikable Gas
but she must also stand idly by while this
Attendant is mauled to death
Sprinkles could handle a role with such inherent contradiction is a
real tribute to the actor
in the furry suit who played her; Joe.
It should also be noted
that Joe chose the role of
Sprinkles over Benji
(the latest installment of which
was being filmed at the same time)
the greater depth of characterization
in the “Sprinkles” role.
For that we are extremely grateful.
