Here’s this week’s Email Newsletter!
I think we just passed the halfway mark on Summer 2010. Does anyone see the lever to slow it down?
Also, we won’t be posting much content next week or sending a newsletter because of the item below…
On Location at the Traverse City Film Festival
All next week we’ll be on location at the Traverse City Film Festival. The festival takes place Tuesday, July 27th through Sunday, August 1st. Check their site for remaining tickets and also the times of free panels and free movies on the BIG screen at the Open Space that anyone can enjoy.
Absolute Michigan & Leelanau.com sponsor the festival and manage the online media so we may have a little biased, but we have to say that this is one of the coolest weeks we get a chance to be a part of. In 2010, we’re going to be working with a great group of folks including the University of Michigan Film School to produce daily online video – stay tuned!
Speaking of video, click over to Leelanau.com for a great video from last year’s festival!

Thanks to the Glen Arbor Sun we found this great video from the Leelanau Conservancy and their Why Leelanau Blog. You can see all their videos on their YouTube channel – click the image to the right for their latest – Summertime Fun!
Andrea Maio Teaching Film Making Class for Teens
While we’re down in Glen Arbor, the Glen Arbor Art Association is bringing in filmmaker, writer and radio producer Andrea Maio for a one week documentary boot camp course for teens August 9-12, 10 AM – 5 PM. It will be a whirlwind week exploring the many modes of non-fiction storytelling in all its stages; from research and interview techniques to shooting to making tough decisions in the editing room; students will get hands on experience in every aspect of documentary filmmaking. Details right here!

It’s 78 degrees with light rain at 5:00 PM at Leelanau Coffee Roasting in Glen Arbor. The record high for July 21 was 96 degrees in 1987, and the 80s proved themselves an extreme decade with the record low of 46 in 1981. There’s a good chance of rain overnight and tomorrow morning with skies clearing and mid to upper 80s for Friday. For the weekend, expect rain to swing back through Saturday morning with skies becoming mostly sunny with highs in the 70s in the afternoon. Sunday, look for mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 70s.
