Thanks for stopping in to learn more about JDog Productions, LLC. I formed the company in 2018 as a reward to myself for a 40+ year career as a broadcast journalist. Although 2020 was an extraordinarily difficult year, it provided JDP with some incredibly positive opportunities. We released not one, but two new documentaries, Justified Journey and INterDEPENDENCE. Both have been very well received; in fact, Justified Journey attracted international attention and was awarded Best Documentary in the 2020 Indian Indie Film Festival. INterDEPENDENCE is being used for educational purposes and has been featured by the Autism Society of South Central Wisconsin and classes taught by Prof. Sue Pastor at Edgewood College. Both documentaries also received fiscal sponsorships by non-profit groups to allow us to accept tax-deductible contributions to underwrite the cost of production.
Looking ahead to 2021, we are hoping to eventually begin showing the films in theatre settings where we can engage audiences in discussion after the showing. In addition, we are working on a new documentary project that promises to provide rare and never-before-seen aspects of our juvenile justice system. Along with documentaries, JDP also creates shorter videos for public and private groups (check out the DMI video in the Video Projects section of the website). My decades of work as a journalist have also given me great background for media coaching and I have conducted sessions with members of the Wisconsin State Assembly, among others. I hope you will explore our site some more to see what I’ve been talking about and I look forward to hearing, and perhaps working with, you and your organization.
