Bring Your Encounter Stories!

For Immediate Release:
October 19, 2011

Brauer Productions wants actual DOGMAN stories for possible DVD ‘special features’ bonus material.

TRAVERSE CITY – Brauer Productions recently completed filming the official DOGMAN feature film in Benzie County and Director Rich Brauer wants your Dogman stories! The idea came to Rich after hearing numerous tales from people in and around Benzie County during the project. Brauer wants to capture these stories for possible inclusion on the final DOGMAN DVD.

Anyone with a first-hand DOGMAN story should call the Benzie County Chamber of Commerce at (231) 882-5801, Mon-Fri from 9am-5pm, to make an appointment for a filmed interview, conducted in a private setting by Dogman songwriter/author Steve Cook who wrote the original song in 1987. To accommodate as many people as possible, each interview will be limited to fifteen minutes.

The interviews will take place at the Best Western Scenic Hill Resort — located at 1400 US-31 in Beulah — on Saturday, November 5th, from 9am-5pm. Appointments are required! This is a first-come, first-serve opportunity for you to relate your piece of Michigan folklore, so gather your thoughts and share some of the mystery.

    I believe I’ve encountered something similar to what is being described. I live in the middle of the deep woods and I caught a video of something that looks like a dogman. It was peaking it’s head through a 6 foot tall window. Check this out:

    I’m open to any questions – Ben
