BEHIND THE LENS

Shaggy Dog Project is proud to announce "Behind The Lens", an interview series about all things film and filmmaking in Eugene, Oregon, with host Tom Blank, now airing on Channel 29, CTV.

Our host Tom Blank is a renowned and somewhat retired Hollywood director. Tom’s career was in television, with shows such as Ironside, Ellery Queen, the Incredible Hulk, and a list too long for this page, but you can check his IMDB

These in-depth and intelligent conversations about film, how and why movies are important, the evolution of the film industry, behind-the-scenes stories and much more are the result of a year-long project.   We developed this project to learn about the craft of broadcast, in accordance with our mission of 'learning film by doing film'.    

Many thanks to all our guests for their patience and willingness to participate and contribute their time and experience to this project.  

"Behind The Lens" was recorded using the facilities of Community Television of Lane County.  See CTV broadcast schedules

Interested In Film-making?

The Shaggy Dog Project is designed to guide aspiring local filmmakers through the process of creating short, dramatic films using professional screenwriting and filmmaking techniques. The program is based on the premise that learning is best accomplished by doing.

From Story Idea To Screenplay

Stories are selected from ideas submitted by class members. The ideas are then developed into short (5 to 10 page) screenplays. From those screenplays that qualify, short (5 to 10 minute) films are produced with class members serving as the production crew. The goal is to provide the total filmmaking experience, from basic-idea-to-finished-film.

Shaggy Dog Project Welcomes Enthusiasm and Team Players.  For more information on joining The Shaggy Dog Project, contact us.
