Hey everyone, I wanted to drop in and say hello. I'm a self taught, small business owner of a newer indie video production company out of the Detroit Michigan area, specializing in working with local artists to make affordable high quality multi-cam HD live performance videos and official music videos. I just finished producing my first official music video and I am now looking for feedback and a means of getting it out there and seen. Looking forward to checking out the forum. Thanks!

There is a "Please critique my work" section on this forum, just scroll down the categories and you'll see it. That's really where this post belongs.

Post sounds more like, "Hey hire me and my company", than "I'm new..."

 

How's the govenor of Michigan treating the film industry these days?

OK I posted it in the "Please critique my work" section. I would love to be hired, but I doubt this is the best place to look for potential employment, and I'm more worried about bettering my craft anyways, so to speak.

I'm not sure of the Governors stance on the film industry, but I do know they have been shooting quite a few movies here in Detroit lately.

Then you should be able to shoot a film CHEAPLY in Detroit. Do you write?. If so, use what you got. I can see several story ideas for the Detroit landscape. The first title that pops into my head is "Death of the American Dream" a film about a group of friends dealing with poverty and loss of hope in a once great city. I can see a comedy dealing with all that is Detroit in the modern age. There seem to be a myriad of possibilities for your area. Detroit could be a metaphor for America. My mind races at the possibilities of the decay of an Iconic city torn asunder by corporate greed and globalization. It's a story ripe for today's brewing discourse and disillusionment.  All you gotta do is figure it out, put it on paper and shoot it.
