Imagine a glorious sea of Golden Retrievers frolicking in a bucolic summer camp setting. This was the imagery that inspired us to make this dogumentary film. The film centers around Goldstock (think Woodstock meets Golden Retrievers), an annual event that takes place every Labor Day weekend in rural northeastern Pennsylvania. Goldstock is really about dog rescue and the attendees come from all over the country to re-energize, reconnect with old friends, and raise money for the dog rescue organizations that they run or represent.
Our crew had the privilege of attending this past Labor Day weekend and filming the event, and we had a glorious time. Our days of shooting were long and our crew worked their butts off, but it was an amazing experience and we made a lot of wonderful friends four legged and two. At the end of the day, as Gail Lustig, the founder of Goldstock so eloquently puts it, these dogs rescue people as much as people rescue them. And this is what our film is all about.
We had an awesome time at the 14th annual SouthSide Film Festival this past weekend! Thank you Katie, Glenn, Jeff and everybody at SSFF who did such an amazing job and made us feel so welcomed. It was so great meeting other filmmakers as well. Can't wait to come back next year!
