Our Pack

As a pack we are not rugged individualists. We focus on teamwork and building long-term relationships to achieve the premiere video content you’ve been searching for. With decades of experience, Painted Dog Media will bring your vision to life and help share your message with the world.

"Painted dogs develop a deep and rich social bond, with the success of the pack relying heavily on the leadership of an alpha female. There are accounts of packs caring for their sick and mourning lost family members.”

Kara

Producer

Kara began her career in film and television after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Film, Media and Visual Studies. She then pursued a career in wildlife filmmaking in the Kruger National Park. After that she felt the next wild step would be in the direction of children’s television. She then joined Okuhle Media as a video producer on the award winning daily live show - Hectic Nine 9. Her time in the African bush with painted dogs as well as the wild live studio is what inspired her journey to Painted Dog Media. Kara has produced and directed a number of independent short films, animations, and corporate creative productions. She is a video producer, poet, environmentalist, entertainer, and has an edgy creative style. Her intrigue and sarcastic wit are the fuel to her passion for producing captivating entertainment through Painted Dog Media.

"Painted Dogs have a hunting range of around 500 square miles; which is almost three times the size of Philadelphia."

"Painted dogs democratically vote on hunts. The pack rallies together and the dominant dog initiates the voting with a sneeze. If enough dogs respond, the hunt will begin."
