Local Filmmaker Colin Duerr Releases New Short Film, “John Panich Is Dead”

Not only does the film center on Detroit local artist John Panich, but the film will also feature Joe Average from Of Mice And Musicians and Jimmy Doom of Almighty Lumberjacks Of Death. Plus, keep your eyes (and ears) peeled for choreographed dances from Tunde Olaniran and guitar from Dave Taylor of The Amino Acids. It’s a project that is filled to the brim with local Detroit talent.

"The Z"

Parking Structure With A Twist – Local Filmmakers To Make Documentary about “The Z”

Lately, “The Z” has captured all the buzz – a massive, ten-story, “Z”-shaped parking structure, retail center, and art gallery which recently opened its doors to the public last week. Personally, I believe the most impressive features of this structure are the paint-covered interior walls, showcasing the work of twenty-seven international artists who worked day and night to make this vision a reality. A team of local filmmakers – including Sean “Seabright” Jackson, Jon Braue, and Joe Talbot – had the opportunity to capture an amazing series of moments.

The film titled “Stranger” was put together by a small group of ambitious, local filmmakers with a love for filmmaking.

The single-day festival celebrating Detroit’s arts and cultural diversity (that – quite literally – is set in the alleys of Cass Corridor) took place on Saturday, September 7th, and local up-and-coming filmmaker Daniel Berhane was on-site, camera in hand.
