Independent filmaker look for investors for movie about the hum.
What’s that strange sound you hear? Could it be the buzz over a new crowd-sourcing campaign for a documentary about Windsor, Ontario’s mysterious humming noise?
Toronto-based artist and filmmaker Adam Makarenko is trying to raise $15,000 on Indiegogo.com to make “Zug Island – The Story of the Windsor Hum.”
The film project seeks to investigate what Makarenko describes in a trailer he’s posted as “a real-life X File.”
The producer has a plan to be right there, living in the area in order to experience it. The point of the film is investigative but his goals are to stop the noise. There is some mystery mongering going on.
Zug Island: The Story of The Windsor Hum will take an investigative look into the cracks of dark industry. What secrets are hidden on Zug Island? Is there a secret military base? Could it just be something in an industrial process that is creating this low frequency sound? The possibilities are endless, and so far unknown. The people of this documentary are made up of U.S. and Canadian residents, military experts, businessmen, politicians, scientists, and acoustic engineers to name a few. Collectively, they will give us different perspectives, and insights getting us closer to the real answers. Where is the hum coming from? What else has happened there?
I’m not sure it’s a “real-life X file”. But I’m fascinating by stuff like this. He only has about $2000 of his $15,000 goal. I’d like to know the source of the hum. He claims to have access to experts. And plans to use miniatures. So, I’d be concerned the focus is on the artistic instead of the investigation. Recall that Canada had also approved funding to study the source of the noise that bothers so many. I feel that’s a more sound approach with greater credibility. Regardless, good luck, dude.
