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.
