Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 15, 2013
Los Angeles – The pulsating beats and excitement of electronic dance music is captured in an upcoming documentary film chronicling Detroit as the birthplace of Techno, and the huge influence it has had on the global music scene. Jennifer Washington and Kristian Hill of the Detroit Sound Project are in the final phases of production and are seeking funds to cover remaining expenses. The online fundraiser launches on Wednesday November 13, 2013 and is hosted by Fundrazr.com. The goal is to raise $10,000 in 30 days.
The producers of the Detroit Sound Project are reaching out to the community and soliciting support through both fiscal and vital sponsorship. “It is our mission to help reprogram the media and produce content that shows the beautiful side of what the world views as one of the most dangerous, challenged cities in America,” states Executive Producer Jennifer Washington “…and it’s going to take the support of the people in order for this pro-Detroit film to see the light of day,” she continues.
Supporters can also catch a glimpse of the producers’ journey exploring the electronic music history from its Detroit roots all the way to South Africa in a half-hour long episode of “Electric Roots” which is scheduled to air on the Africa Channel. “We get an opportunity to tell our story as Detroit filmmakers about our recent trip to Cape Town and Johannesburg to interview superstar DJ’s Richie Hawtin and Black Coffee,” explains Producer/Director Kristian R. Hill.
