Film Crew Brings Northern Michigan Legend to Life in Benzie County

A film crew is working to transform a northern Michigan legend into a feature film. The Dogman is a mythical woodland creature that appears on the seventh year of each decade. The story inspired the song “The Legend,” the book Year of the Dogman, and now the movie Dogman. The film recently received funding from the Michigan Film Office and has been shooting in Benzie County. 9 and 10's Kyle Mitchell and Photojournalist Joel Deaner have more on how filmmakers are bringing the legend to life.
