Why wait for an opportunity to come along when you can create it yourself? That’s what prompted us to form ShyDog Productions. We are a group of like-minded creatives from various countries with backgrounds in acting, directing, writing, cinematography and music.
Each of us is different, but we are all united by our passion to create fun, engaging productions for film, TV, web and theatre. And have a ton of fun along the way!
