Another piece of Design 99 advice:
Paul Washburn is a filmmaker who grew up in the suburbs of Detroit and now lives in California most of the year. But every once in awhile he spends a few months in Detroit filming and editing his projects.
Last summer he lived in Hamtramck and came into the Design 99 storefront pretty regularly. Be sure to check out John's Carpet House and on You Tube there are several recordings as well. Also, Washburn's Director's reel has a bunch of Hamtramck footage.
