Director Statement

The inspiration behind the making of "Hungry Dog" is very close to my heart. My dog "Kai" was rescued from the Dog Meat Market in Thailand, by an incredible organization called L.I.F.E. Animal Rescue. I wanted to do something that could help bring attention to their noble cause and possibly touch people's hearts. I didn't want the film to have the typical sad storyline that we all see on television, and it's not about the Meat Market. I wanted the film to be "family friendly". I felt that the MOST important part would be to remind people that dogs have feelings too. I want the audience to have honest empathy for the dog depicted in my short film. I thought to myself, if I can save just ONE dog, I did my job. But with a little luck, perhaps I can inspire thousands of people to be kind and loving to all animals! That would really be my reward for making this tiny little film. :)
