Victoria Stilwell arrives in Alfred, Maine to begin her exploration of State Farm’s arson dog training program. The 8 handlers in the new class arrive from all over the US and describe their expectations, goals and assumptions for the four-week long program. Victoria watches as trainers Mike and Billy help lead trainer Paul Gallagher pair the dogs and handlers based on type, personality and drive.
This 8 part digital series explores how these dogs and their handlers are trained in the field of arson investigation. I served as Post-Production Supervisor, Co-Editor, Motion Graphics Designer and Colorist on this project.
