Phantom the Dog
Love giver/Crazy Runner
Phantom is Alchemist Films' beloved canine companion, and although we hate to leave him behind when we're working, he understands that we're working hard to provide for him.
Whenever we return from filming in the field, Phantom rushes to greet us and gives us a warm welcome home with a friendly face lick or two. He's an integral part of the team and always puts a smile on our faces, even on the toughest of days.
