Over the years, I’ve lost a lot of excitement about films in the “found footage” genre, and I think my jaded attitude would need a new spin on the story being told as well as a good story to hook me again.

Working from a script written by Arizona native Mark King, Adam Collis recognized with CAR DOGS that he had the perfect project to showcase a new model of independent filmmaking — students would be assigned to specific departments of the production rather than being relegated to unchallenging positions as gofers, giving them a chance to gain hands-on production experience in addition to earning their first actual production credits.
