    I recently did a project in a course where I had to make a movie poster. I made mine as a documentary on the current state of the American Pit Bull Terrier. At first, it was just the idea of the poster, and passing with a good mark. However, now, I'm starting to get a strong interest in pursuing an actual documentary, with help from owners, enthusiasts, ethical and responsible breeders, and delve into the core reasons why some people dislike them and similar breeds.

    Before I do that, I really want to start off with a short movie (to play with my editing skills, since I am wanting to pursue a career along these lines) and I was wondering if any of the misunderstood breed owners (and beyond!) would mind if I used their dog(s) for this. I'd only need a couple of pictures, and a little bit of cooperation.:D
    I'm doing this as a freelance project, in response to some harsh views directed at my previous project, supporting a good APBT image. A few people talked badly, only after they found out what APBT stood for:rolleyes: and gave some extremely misinformed information to me! I'm not sure why they were trying to educate me on a breed I hold near and dear to my heart, but either way, I believe these individuals are genuinely misinformed.

    Any help is appreciated immensely, and I'll give photo credit if you'd like or don't mind. :) The good owners deserve to be recognized just as much as the dogs IMO.

    Miakoda, those are great photos! Thank you so much! Your babies are beautiful. :)

    Basically, any photos of anyone's dogs here I'm sure would be fine. I am sure everyone here is a responsible owner, so any action shot, or shots with children, sleeping, playing, eating, anything!
    I'm also searching for a song to go along with this, but I'll know more about what I want regarding then once I get some pictures set up.

    I don't know what type of songs you're looking for, but I have a large collection of music. I thought I could lend some advice. My suggestions:

    Beautiful - Jim Brickman/Wayne Brady
    Gorgeous song. It really takes your breath away.
    Lyrics: http://www.onlylyrics.com/song.php?id=30579

    Dream On - Aerosmith
    Great song. Aerosmith isn't really my favorite, but I have to admit, this song really gets to me.
    Lyrics: http://www.lyrics007.com/Aerosmith%20Lyrics/Dream%20On%20Lyrics.html

    How to Save a Life - The Frey
    Really hits home, with all the pit bulls dying in shelters all over the country, for no reason other then the fact that they were born a pit bull.
    Lyrics: http://www.lyricsmania.com/lyrics/fray_the_lyrics_4598/how_to_save_a_life_lyrics_14947/how_to_save_a_life_lyrics_173571.html

    I'm a Survivor - Reba McEntire
    The title says it all.
    Lyrics: http://www.lyrics007.com/Reba%20McEntire%20Lyrics/I'm%20A%20Survivor%20Lyrics.html

    If Everyone Cared - Nickelback
    Just like the lyrics say "If everyone cared...then we'd see the day, when nobody died." If everyone was educated and unprejudiced, there wouldn't be any pitbulls left in shelters for no reason.
    Lyrics: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/nickelback/ifeveryonecared.html

    Savin' Me - Nickelback
    Another great Nickelback song.
    Lyrics: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/nickelback/savinme.html

    Stand - Rascal Flatts
    Awesome song, and one of my personal favorites.
    Lyrics:
    http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/rascalflatts/stand.html


    There You Are - Martina McBride
    Lyrics: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/m/martina+mcbride/there+you+are_20089673.html

    True Colors - Phil Collins
    Awesome song - one of my top picks for this video. Look at the lyrics, you'll see what I mean.
    Lyrics: http://www.lyrics007.com/Phil Collins Lyrics/True Colors Lyrics.html

    You Are Loved (Don't Give Up) - Josh Groban
    Now, I'm a big Josh fan, but that's not why I picked this song.
    Lyrics: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/joshgroban/youareloveddontgiveup.html

    You Gotta Be - Des'ree
    Awesome song about standing up for what you believe in, and what you gotta do to get by.
    Lyrics: http://www.stlyrics.com/songs/d/desree1131/yougottabe51194.html

    Now, if I had to choose what song to put on a Pro-AmStaff/APBT video, I'd pick these:
    1st: True Colors
    2nd: You Gotta Be/You Are Loved (TIE)

    Good luck with the video! Be sure to let us know when it's done. Can't wait!

    Sorry about the triple post. I can't figure out how to delete a post, so I've replaced the copies with this.
