Welcome to APG Films

APG Films is where all my student and post-student films are made.  I am promoting a short documentary, "Dogs to the Rescue."

About Me

Who am I and my background

My name is Andrew Gallagher.  I am a short documentary filmmaker.  I became interested after taking film classes at Scottsdale Community College in Scottsdale, Arizona.  I took courses in film production, screenwriting and editing.  I shot three short films and one short documentary.  I completed an A.A.S. degree in 2008.

Movies I've worked on outside school

I also worked on five feature films.  They are "The Savages" (2007), "Yesterday Was A Lie" (2008), "Uncross the Stars" (2008), "James White" (2015) and appeared in the horror documentary "The Blackout Experiments" (2016), which was shown at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.  Look up "Andrew Gallagher II" at IMDb.com

What I am promoting

In 2017, I filmed "Dogs to the Rescue," a short documentary about pet therapy and how dogs can provide love and healing to people.  The film can show in 19 minutes how dogs can bring a smile to people's faces.  The movie was shown at the 2017 Columbia Gorge Int'l Film Festival Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017 in the Red Room in Big Bear Lake, California.  Scroll to bottom for more details.

What people are saying

"Thanks Andrew, I was able to watch it. I really enjoyed it. It was clear to see that the volunteers felt like they were doing something worthwhile to help an almost forgotten population of people. My favorite shot was when you showed Yippy chilling out in a wheelchair at the assisted living facility, it was a cute shot and established how comfortable these dogs are there."

"Hi Andrew -- Thanks for sharing the video, I really enjoyed it!  They seem to do a great job training the dogs and owners, and the seniors sure do enjoy having the dogs visit."

"I liked the way you narrated the film!  You have a radio voice!"

"I enjoyed watching Krystal, she's full of action!"
