In Chapter 1 of 10 in her 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, filmmaker Tricia Regan shares how getting a dog has changed her life. Her puppy creates a positive environment at home, around neighbors, and with friends. It also teaches Regan responsibility. In the first few months, the new responsibility triggers Regan's maternal instincts. Over time, she trains her dog and finds a new companion. Regan is an Emmy-Award winning filmmaker. She directed, produced and shot "Autism: The Musical." When not shooting documentary films, Regan has worked as a director, producer, and writer at ABC, NBC, FOX, and Lifetime. She earned a bachelors from Binghamton University and masters from New York University.
