Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite.
In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.
Two years ago a mysterious hum started emanating from Zug Island (an industrial island on the Rouge River, between Windsor and Detroit). The island is inhabited by a steel mill, and a few other industries. The industries have been there for over forty years, but no one has heard a hum until recently. This hum is creating adverse effects on those living in Windsor and Detroit.
This will be an investigative documentary jam packed with stake-outs, surveillance, mixed with a series of interviews from residents to scientific experts. Director/artist Adam makarenko will use miniature sets to help illustrate the story...
Director: Adam Makarenko
Producer: Talia Reingold
Coordinator: Taryn Mueller
About the Production:
"Zug Island: The Story of The Windsor Hum will be a call to action for me. I grew up in a town shaped by industry, and I am also particualrily sesitive to sounds. I feel for the people of Windsor suffering at the hands of this terrible noise.
"We're living in an ever increasingly noisey world. It's fair to say that it's not good for any of us. Low frequency sound issues are poorly understood, and many people are affected by this all over the world. Right now, Windsor Ontario and parts of Detroit are being bombarded by a hum." -- Taryn Mueller
