On November 15, 2008, veteran Detroit firefighter Walter Harris was killed while battling a blaze in a vacant house.
A few weeks later, NPR ran a story about Detroit firefighters and the city’s increasing load of abandoned homes. (You can listen here.)
And we were off. We knew this story had to be told. PBS funded the 10-minute trailer you see on our homepage. We shot the trailer in just five days. Networks and distributors are interested, but in the current economy, this kind of support happens slowly. So we’ve put together a unique funding structure, blending donations, sponsors and “in-kind” support of goods, gear and services.
We are committed to making a film we can all be proud of.
Thanks so much for your support.
