Welcome to Lucky Dog
Lucky Dog Productions LLC is a like a microbrewery for video and film. My name is Tom Landon and I started this tiny company in 2007 to aid in the production of the documentary A Gift for the Village. I take pride in the fact that each production is different, and is constructed to achieve its own purpose.
Here’s a short sample of some recent projects:
Lucky Dog recently completed a promotional video piece for the 2012 CityWorks (X)po, a small cities conference held in Roanoke.
A Gift for the Village was the result of 4 years of work with my Co-Producer Jenna Swann and artist Jane Lillian Vance. It premiered in Nepal in June, 2010 and at the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke in October, 2010. It has since been featured in several film festivals, winning Best Documentary and People’s Choice Awards at the Virginia Indie Film Festival and a Golden Kahuna from the Honolulu Film Awards. In the fall of 2011 I will travel with the film on the southern U.S. as part of the South Arts Southern Circuit of Independent Film Makers tour, sponsored by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Patient Stories: Angeline
This was produced for a series of online patient stories by Dr. Robert Williams, a Roanoke area surgeon specializing in breast cancer treatment. Shot in one evening, the clip follows Angeline, a ten year survivor, as she talks about her battle with cancer and how her faith pulled her through.
Lucky Dog produced this short introduction to “If Trouble Don’t Kill Me” by Ralph Berrier, Jr. The author has been using this clip during personal appearances and book signings, and it has been viewed over 1200 times since it was posted in October, 2010.
