Help us get back on the road to finishing our film! After the theft of our camera gear and audio equipment on August 13th, 2014, Jennifer Washington and I have been overwhelmed by outpouring of support from our friends, family and supporters throughout the world. Our Detroit family and friends not only put the word out of the $1,000 reward for the Zoom audio equipment throughout Facebook and other social media; they scoured pawn shops, hung reward posters throughout Eastern Market and donated cash to let the people know that this was bigger than just some small production company’s equipment being stolen. The support for what I called, “#OperationGetMySh*tBack” was real and infectious. We can’t tell people how much that movement has reenergized our quest to urgently finish this film that now has a life of its own. While we remain optimistic we’ll get our equipment and lost audio files back in the near future, we need to reshoot the interviews we lost and replace the gear insurance and the microgrant from Awesome Foundation don’t cover as soon as possible.
In our effort to raise the funds we need to reach the goal of finishing our current film, Washington – Hill Productions cordially invites you to attend the Detroit Sound Project - #OperationGetMySh*tBack Fundraiser/Screening, September 27th, 2014 at the Charles Wright Museum, Detroit, Michigan. We’ll be screening both of our 2014 critically accaimed productions. It will be a family friendly event.
So, help us continue our mission of highlighting Detroit’s most natural resource of music by coming down to Charles Wright and/or donating what you can so we can get back on the road. We look forward to seeing you for both screenings on September 27th, 2014!
