So excited to have attended the premiere of Car Dogs a movie with a star studded line up, like Academy Award winning Actress Octavia Spencer, George Lopez, Nia Vardalos and Patrick J. Adams , Josh Hopkins, Cory Hardrict, Chris Mulkey and Alessandra Torresani to name a few.
What is remarkable about this film is how Director, Producer Adam Collis and Arizona State University Film professor pulled this movie off with a shoestring budget. Adam Collins wanted to give his students the real life opportunity to learn film making on an actual set.
“This project was born out of the innovation of the culture that is Arizona State University ( ASU) ” said Adam Collins . ” ASU was ranked the most innovative school in the country by US News and World report above Stanford and MIT that is a big deal. Car Dogs and Film Spark gave 85 students the opportunity to work and learn from Oscar winning actors . There has not been any other school that has accomplished this type of innovation, this is what Arizona State University’s President Crow has created.”
“This culture inspired me to think… WOW, I’m going to do something diffrent, I’m going to give my students a chance to learn film making on an actual set, where they can get hands on experience as well as academic credit. But the most important experience is the first one, breaking into this industry is so difficult, it’s so hard to get a job. And I wanted to give my students the opportunity to not just to work with George Lopez, Nia Vardalos and Octavia Spencer but with cinematography, costume and set designers that came from Hollywood to give back and give the students hands on learning. ”
And he sure did! You can enjoy Car Dogs in select theatres, check listings.

With everything to gain, and even more to lose, Mark Chamberlain (Patrick J. Adams) and his brazen sales team have just eight hours to sell more cars than have ever been sold in a single day. As the clock ticks down, their outrageous tactics step up, with each salesperson ready to do whatever it takes to be top “car dog.” But for Mark, the stakes are much more than a paycheck.
Until next time,
