June update

Hunting Blind got into the upcoming Detroit Windsor International Film Festival that runs June 22 – 26th. It will be screening at 9:00 on Saturday, June 25th. If you’d like to attend the opening night film and party on the 22nd, One of Us Films has four passes available. So, email at clezotte@oneofusfilms.org, first come first serve.

Also, if you can’t make the screening and would LOVE to get your hands on a copy of the film, please take a look at the project we have running at Indiegogo. If you contribute at the $10 level, we will also send you a DVD copy of Hunting Blind.

In Development
The Reimagining Detroit doc project keeps plugging along, with another grant just awarded from Quicken Loans – thanks, Quicken! If you think someone you may know would be interested in getting involved as a sponsor please send them along to this page where they can download our partners kit.

As some of you may know, Carrie LeZotte has started moonlighting at Detroit Public Television. Her title there is Executive Producer, Content and Community Engagement, and she’s been charged with managing the content and relationships around education. Those projects currently include Great Teachers, American Graduate and Early Childhood.

Lora Probert has already been called in to support one of these projects and One of Us Films will tap into our network as needed. It’s a terrific place for the “content with a conscious” philosophy that One of Us Films includes in its mission. LeZotte also supported the coverage of the Mackinac Policy Conference, which was broadcast for the first time. All of the content, as public media, was shared for free with other organizations across the state. You can see over 30 hours of on-demand content, here.

We’re always looking for good interns, especially those with an interest in marketing and design. See our employment opportunities for more details.
