Wonder Dog Films

Wonder Dog Films is the production company of freelancer Sharyn Paul Brusie. A number of her projects are available for viewing online, including an excellent piece recently featured on MPBN's Maine Experience called "The Many Lives of Loring."
Loring Air Force Base in Limestone, Maine once served as America's first line of defense against a possible Soviet attack. With the biggest hangars and longest runways in the world at that point, the population quadrupled and its economy thrived. But then the base closed in 1994 and according to one resident, "it's like somebody came down and lifted a town right out of the potato fields and flew away with it." How has Limestone managed to adapt to the loss of such a vital economic lifeline, and what sustains the town today? [Link]
