Zug Island”

Tweetable Logline:

Zug Island: The Story of The Windsor Hum will take an investigative
look into the cracks of dark industry. What secrets are hidden on Zug?

Elevator Pitch:

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…

Production Team:

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

Current Status:

In production.
