Susan Nation of Hop To It Productions and Judith Keenan of BookShorts Inc. are pleased to announce the start of production on the Talent Hounds transmedia project, supported by national broadcaster The Pet Network.
The engaging one-hour Talent Hounds television documentary traces the history and humanization of dogs and their changing roles and talents from wolves to wonder-kids. The website offers entertainment, networking and know-how for the community of proud dog parents. www.talenthounds.ca
Over the next few months, the Talent Hounds Producers will sniff out a range of talents, dog breeds and training methods. They will meet entertainers, fashionistas, cuties, heroes, hunters, sled dogs, herding dogs, working dogs, service dogs, guide dogs, therapy dogs, athletes, performers and dogs from rescues and shelters. And, of course, the people whose lives these talented hounds enrich.
Casting calls for talented dogs to appear in Talent Hounds will start November 9, 2012
Proud dog parents can sign up to showcase their dogs on talenthounds.ca.
Talent Hounds will be part of the strong new 2013 programming line-up from national specialty television channel The Pet Network. The Pet Network is committed to telling stories that foster compassion, care and a deeper understanding between people and their pets, so the Talent Hounds project is a great fit.
Talent Hounds is produced by Hop To It Productions and Judith Keenan of BookShorts Inc. with the assistance of The Canada Media Fund and the Canadian Media Production Association Transmedia Production Acceleration Program.
