Terence Curren founded AlphaDogs in 2002 when he envisioned a future that would have a demand for more than just a conventional post-production facility. Sixteen years ago, the traditional business model was just beginning to show cracks as the falling costs of equipment led some producers to invest in their own. Curren believed talent would be the key ingredient to thrive in the technological world of the 21st Century.
