Film festival to showcase region's talent

By JESSE DUNSMORE | Times Herald |

Richard DeShon Jr., co-owner of local talent agency The Thespis Group, believes there are plenty of filmmakers in Michigan, and he wants them to come to Port Huron.

The Thespis Group is organizing the first Blue Water Film Festival, a showcase of movies put together by Michigan and Sarnia residents -- and no one else.

"We want to promote Michigan (and) give the individuals a chance who otherwise wouldn't think they'd have a chance of winning," DeShon said. "Otherwise, you'd have people from New York or California submitting films and this is what they do for a living, as opposed to individuals coming out of college, coming out of high school, even."
