Casting Call for ReThink Documentary

National campaign stresses importance and value of public housing

Cone Communications has been working on a national campaign for the Housing Authority Insurance (HAI) Group to stress the importance and value of public housing. The Council of Large Public Housing Authorities (CLPHA) is proud to be a part of the HAI group's ReThink initiative, a national public awareness campaign encouraging people to reconsider their perceptions about public housing and realize the benefits it offers individuals and the greater community.

The ReThink: Why Housing Matters initiative is in its third year and is extremely excited to be partnering with Emmy-award winning film studio, Stillmotion. Stillmotion will be creating a full-length documentary featuring people whose lives have been affected by public housing. The documentary will be released later this year at local launch parties, then pitched to film festivals, film distribution companies, and others to raise awareness about public housing.

Casting Has Begun!

We are reaching out today as we would love to work with you to uncover stories, programs - and past, present, or future residents that could be highlighted in this film! We have created a casting questionnaire, which can be found at www.WhyHomeMatters.com.

Deadline for the questionnaire is Friday, April 10.
The questionnaire is intended for people that are on waiting lists, current public housing residents, and people in need of housing.
People who complete the questionnaire will be automatically entered for the chance to win one of 25 Target gift cards ranging in price from $20-100 (winners notified on Friday, April 17).
The questionnaire is mobile-responsive so it can be easily completed on computers, tablets and smart phones.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Stillmotion Producer Maribeth Romslo at maribeth@stillmotion.ca or 952-237-9496.
