Forgotten Detroit Updates!
Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you know that the wheels are still turning on Forgotten Detroit, though up till now it's been a bit slower than we'd like. Isn't that always the story with a passion project? We're looking to have the new cut to Absofacto (the wonderful indie pop musician scoring the piece) by April 1st! We are so excited to hear his impressions of the film.
Also, the first promotional images for Forgotten Detroit will be released this April in the form of an advertisement for the comic and movie. The image will be printed in the back of the trade paperback "She Died In Terrebonne" and will debut at none other than the Boston Comic Con in mid April! We are so excited to finally be spreading the word about the project in such a fun way. The advertisement will have a QR code that you can scan with your smartphone or tablet that will take you directly to the Forgotten Detroit Pinterest board where you can keep up to date on our progress. If you're already on Pinterest, check us out!
Thanks so much, and stay tuned!
