Unleashed

Unleashed is a documentary about facility dogs and child life services, created in partnership with Prisma Health Children’s Hospital in Greenville, SC. Unleashed shows many moments we don’t usually see in hospital systems and it shows the incredible impact these dogs and their handlers have on children and families in the hospital. This story follows four of the facility dogs: Vivitar, Kalle, Kenzie, and King. Each dog has a certain role at the hospital, and this film focuses on their specific jobs and their roles at the children’s hospital.

Director Statement

For me, I see filmmaking as a way to help other people. I love telling stories; they're how were interact with those around us. When you meet someone new, typically you start off with sharing your own story. What became so cool to me is being able to do that through the medium of film. I desire to use filmmaking to help people who's stories might not otherwise be heard.
