When Chris Naka’s boss started bringing her dog, Wrigley, to work, a special bond between Chris and Wrigley was born. Where others saw a 13-year-old dog, Chris saw an opportunity to reenact scenes from some of Hollywood’s greatest romances.
It all started when Chris and his coworkers came up with a recreation of the “I’m flying, Jack” scene from Titanic, complete with wind blowing through Wrigley’s hair (ear). From there, the project kept growing.
It helps that Chris works in a creative industry– for the Blue Man Group theatre company in Chicago– but he says many of their ideas were suggestions: “We started taking the photos during the last five minutes of our lunch and it just took off from there.” he told Today, “Someone printed a bunch of our early pictures, posted them in the green room, and folks from all over the theatre started sending emails with movie suggestions.”
