Why we do what we do.

We are passionate about inspiring stories.


FIlmmaking is something I've always been passionate about, from the day I picked up the family camecorder, to this day. It has stuck with me ever-since. As the years progressed, I found more and more, my passion was honing towards documentary filmmaking and I decided to put all my efforts to learning this craft. I soon discovered it was a whole other ball-game, to compress down hours and hours of dialogue and footage into minutes of video that was engaging and if I wanted to craft great films, I would really need to learn how to tell stories.
At the same time, online video content blew up and everyone was posting videos in one form or another and docuemntary filmswas going through it's own renaisance and the market became completely saturated. On top of the amount of videos and documentary films that were being created, one of the things I noticed was the approach that films and content was being created with. In an era where social media is king, films and online videos are trying to create as much engagement as possible in order to 'trend', they deliberately provoke a negative reaction in people with either contraversial content and polarising people into sides causing them to react and comment. This style of engagement does work, but its at a cost. This really is the cause of the 'outrage' culture. This for me, was a really an unethical approach to engaging with people, preying on people's emotions to cause negativity. So, I spent a great deal learning about positive ways to engage people and found inspiring storytelling is the most effective way to engage with people and leave an empowering impact that not only benefits the audience, but also the reputation of the content creator and film. This is why we are passionate about inspiring stories.

By others and their stories

The name Dogs Go Woof was inspired by a New Zealand comic book.

As a youngster, Craig was fascinated with stories and how they captured his imagination. Inspired by his mother's art, he realised drawing had the ability to tell stories and started looking at ways he could draw his own comics. The only comic book he could find was a comic book series called 'Footrot Flats' by Murray Ball, about a farm-dog called 'Dog' and his adventures in New Zealand. Being a dog, there wasn't much dialogue between characters and Craig was captivated by how well the emotions were captured through the character expressions and loved the idea of bringing drawings to life. At the end of each comic book, Dog would have a written monologue and would sign off with a paw print. As Craig developed his own style, he noticed that all cartoons had some kind of tagline or signature associated to their work and decided to create his own. The first thing that popped into his head was Dogs Go Woof. Boom! It was born, and has stuck ever since.
