Good Thing

A documentary about Shannon Johnstone and her photography project Landfill Dogs written, produced, and directed by Camden Watts

In Production

Good Thing

Good Thing is a documentary featuring Shannon Johnstone, the photographer behind Landfill Dogs. The film is currently in post-production. Johnstone brings dogs from the Wake County Animal Shelter in Raleigh, N.C., to the landfill park for a photo shoot and time outside the kennel. I’m eager to share her story so that people can see exactly how much thought, care, and energy she puts into each image – in hopes that she may save a life.

“Shannon is an incredible photographer. I’m making Good Thing so people will see how much thought, care, and energy she puts into each image in hopes of saving a life.”
– Camden Watts, Director of Good Thing
