"Grooming A Generation" Trailer

When a young customer comes for a haircut to one of these independently-owned African-American barbershops in this town west of Detroit, he can earn a two dollar cash refund by reading aloud to his barber, while in the chair. It's a simple, low-tech, high concept process that has wrought some great results.

Many thanks to Dr. E LaQuint Weaver II and his immensely talented group of singers and musicians in Dr. E. LaQuint Weaver II & The Hallelujah Singers.

Thanks to our on-screen guides and narrators, Deborah, Robert, and John.

To Patrick Murphy who helped launch and produce this project.

To my wife, family, and friends, all of whom helped in countless ways over the four year production schedule.

And to Detroit Public Television, and the Detroit Free Press Freep Film Festival - they gave us air time and screen time, and helped
us shine a light on a Detroit story that is seldom told.

Thank you all.

"Let's Have Some Church Detroit Style" Trailer

More info: www.bigredhen.org
This moving documentary about Detroit-based choir The Hallelujah Singers, and the group's charismatic founder and director Dr. E. LaQuint Weaver, was a 4-year labor of love for director Andrew Sacks. Filled with glorious gospel music, the film takes a look at the hopes, dreams and realities of the 25 men and women who sing in the choir, and also focuses on Weaver's return trip to his boyhood home of Birmingham, Ala., as his group competes in a music awards event. The feature -length work is beautifully shot and skillfully edited, as Sacks and associate producer Patrick Murphy have utilized their many years of experience in video production and photojournalism to create a deeply felt look at the ensemble. Narrated by former WDET music host Rev. Robert Jones, Sr., "Let's Have Some Church" shows how faith, determination and a love of gospel music can give spiritual sustenance to a community. Written by Detroit Free Press
