Kind of a mixed bag of updates:
1) We are almost emerging from four weeks of really intense editing for the film. It’s still got a lot of work to be done (sound engineering, color correction), but the bones are all there, now we just have to make them operate as a total package. Basically, the hard part is really done. And honestly, I am ecstatic about that. If all this sounds like Chinese, recall our Kickstarter campaign that describes the film in detail.
2) David Deal posted a nice interview on his blog SuperHype! where we discussed DL! and shifts in the American Dream. It was kind of a cool conversation, I like the way it turned out. Read it here.
3) Remember talk of HATCH Detroit? The contest offering $50k and a host of business services to a user-submitted retail business idea in Detroit? Well, the semifinalists have been posted and you need to vote! Do that here.
4) Finally, watch this new mini-doc produced by Team Detroit’s Dorota Coy, Toby Barlow and Brian Merkel. Exceptional edits and DP courtesy of Jeffrey Richardson. All the art direction came from Michael Burdick, the fella that also designed this poster for DL!.
