In the final semester of Creative Communications, the media production students break off into groups and produce short documentaries for MTS Stories From Home. For many of us, myself included, this was our first brush with filmmaking. For me, this was the project that set me on the path I’m on now. After co-producing this short film with my group, I knew that I would never be fully satisfied in any other aspect of the communications industry. I needed to work behind the camera and in the edit suite, and I needed help people tell their stories through a visual medium.
Since this short film, I’ve continued to stay in touch with the people from K9 Advocates Manitoba because I really believe in the work they’re doing. I independently produced another short doc for them last summer, which you can see here.
This is the story of one old dog that got a second chance.
