LAND GRAB - Documentary Film Screening and Discussion on Filmmaking in Detroit

LAND GRAB is a feature documentary film about the creation of the Hantz Woodlands on Detroit's east side, which was shot by Michigan natives who recently moved back to the area from LA. The story was filmed almost entirely within the city of Detroit, aside from a few establishing shots, and premiered in the city in 2016 at the Freep Film Festival.

Land Grab was the impetus for the creation of Atlas Industries, which is a production house based in Southfield, MI. A good portion of the team who filmed LAND GRAB now makes up Atlas Industries, which was launched shortly after filming wrapped.

Atlas Industries is a startup, and as such has valuable experience to offer to Detroiters interested in heading down the path of entering the film industry. We hope the discussion following the screening of the film will be informative from both a filmmaker's perspective as well as from a business viewpoint.

Without film incentives, getting into the industry in Michigan can seem daunting. We are a model for being able to launch a successful business in the Detroit area because we can create great work here, but also because we connect with the film industry in other parts of the country to stay relevant and keep business coming through the door. Being able to speak to the value of a national network that, because of our positioning, views Detroit as a formidable content creation space, is sure to spur thought and questions among entrepreneurs focused on entering the media content creation space.

Speakers: Sean O'Grady, Director and Producer of LAND GRAB and CEO of Atlas Industries
