About Curious
Dog Creative

Curious Dog Creative began work as an entertainment company in the areas of documentary film making and project consultation six years ago with Susan Carol Davis’ long-time interest in storytelling from a historical and culturally relevant point of view. What has happened in the past impacts the present and the future so Curious Dog Creative believes insightful interviews and archival research are invaluable.

Collaboration with industry professionals in the areas of directing, producing, screenwriting, photography, editing, and music scoring are at the heart of what makes Curious Dog Creative an excellent choice for developing projects that reflect fine attention to the details that matter, when you want your story to be one audiences, will long remember.

Curious Dog Creative brings Susan Carol Davis’ experience as a professional actress to the forefront of narrative film productions, stage productions, and public speaking engagements. Whether she is coaching an actor for auditions or a community leader for a formal presentation, Ms.Davis provides positive, practical instruction that inspires confidence and develops her students’ natural talents.

A company dedicated to creativity and communication that captures the imagination needs a mascot and ours is Johnny Cash Cisco, a rescue with a big heart, a curious mind, and strong loyalty. Cisco is truly “one of a kind” in the best sense of the word as is every project developed by Curious Dog Creative.
