Michigan is Dreamin’ Big
A casting/crew call for Mirror Dog Productions film “Fair Chase”
and celebrity-charity fundraiser benefiting United Way of Southeastern Michigan
Michigan is Dreamin’ Big! Mirror Dog Productions (MDP) would like to introduce Dreamin’ Big, an exciting multi-purpose event held on Sunday, July 12, 2009 from 9:00am – 8:00pm in the heart of downtown Utica. It will be large enough not only to lift the morale and spirit of Michiganders, but to also highlight the state’s film industry. Dreamin’ Big is a Michigan stimulus Hollywood Block Party focused on promoting Michigan made products, businesses, and charities and to give employment opportunities for Michiganders who dream to break into Michigan’s film industry. Dreamin’ Big will also be the kick off to the National Dreamin’ Big Contest. A surprise formal contest announcement will be made by Mirror Dog Production’s President Kim Marie.
Mirror Dog Productions President Kim Marie said, “It’s all about Michigan! I was born and raised in Michigan before heading out to California to pursue my acting and filmmaking career. And while in California, my dream has always been to return to Michigan with my film industry knowledge and experience to do everything I can to help benefit my home state.”
Dreamin’ Big’s celebrity, charity fund-raiser and casting/crew call will raise much needed funds for United Way’s Basic Needs Program, which will give back to Michigan communities to help local families in need. A silent auction fundraiser will feature “Experience Michigan” packages and items for an “invitation only” Wine Tasting held at Hatchy’s Restaurant. The event will also be host to recruit cast and crew for MDP’s film “Fair Chase” scheduled to begin filming in Michigan. Michiganders are invited to bring a resume and headshot to submit for the casting and crew call for MDP’s upcoming film. Casting call is open to actors and actresses of all ages. Along with the casting call for actors and actresses, MDP is also seeking electricians, camera operators, grips, lighting technicians, etc for their Michigan production crew. Applicants may begin lining up at 7am.
Michigan based companies will be contributing products and guest giveaways throughout the day. Special “surprise” appearances are planned by celebrities and athletes from Los Angeles and Michigan and will be available throughout the day for guest autograph signings. The event will also feature musical entertainment. Dreamin’ Big will also be filmed for the purpose of future public service announcements supporting Michigan and Hollywood and may also be used in MDP’s future Michigan film.
