“An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.” ~ Martin Buber
Has the real potential for films about people and their canine friends ever been fully explored? Interactions between humans and their pets is fascinating as well as the social aspects of animal to animal relationships. We can learn a lot by listening to our pets! Everytime I hear a story about a heroic rescue between a dog and it’s owner, I yearn for more.
According to the Humane Society, there are approximately 78.2 million dog owners alone in the United States – but the market for reaching all animal lovers through film is even greater. What better way than to communicate about animals than through visuals in film that tug at the heart strings?
