Seeking researchers



My name is Jamie Lynn Hackney. I’m a film/television producer in metro Detroit. I am currently crewing up for a new project shooting this summer. It's a new documentary short series spotlighting different stories from Detroit’s history.I’m currently looking for a Multi-Media Researcher (P.A.) 

Would you be willing to pass this communication on to any recent graduates/interns that would be interested in a project like this? Episodes will take viewers back in time to little known yet powerful, eccentric, poignant and relevant tales that resonate with issues today. Why did Saddam Hussein receive a key to the city in 1980? How did Detroiters rise up and save their art during the bankruptcy in 2008? What happened when a British bomber plane violently crashed in a Detroit neighborhood?
Please find document attached with more information.
