Shaggy Dog Project display, "Talent Pool" 2014Shaggy Dog Project shares its story in "Talent Pool", an exhibition at the Jacobs' Gallery in the Hult Center for the Performing Arts and curated by Eugene International Film Festival Director, Mike Dilley. 

The history of film in Eugene, beginning as early as the 1930's, travels the walls of the Jacobs Gallery, and includes a wide spectrum of Eugene's rich culture in the entertainment arts. 







Eugene has been used as a filming location for several Hollywood films, most famously for 1978's National Lampoon's Animal House.

John Belushi had the idea for the film The Blues Brothers during filming of Animal House when he happened to meet Curtis Salgado at what was then the Eugene Hotel.

Getting Straight, starring Elliott Gould and Candice Bergen, was filmed at Lane Community College in 1969.

How to Beat the High Co$t of Living, starring Jane Curtin, Jessica Lange and Susan St. James, was filmed in Eugene in the fall of 1979.

The exhibit continues from October 10 through November 22

See the Shaggy Dog Project story told on three beautiful panels, using a screenplay format highlighted with still images from our nine films.

"Talent Pool" will also be a featured venue for the First Friday ArtWalk on Friday, November 7, from 5:30-8 pm.


Current Films in Production or Post-Production
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.
