thevisitlargetbWho doesn’t want to do their part to help revitalize downtown?! Well, you sir, can fuck off! Everyone else, listen up! The City of Fresno’s Downtown and Community Revitalization Department (DCRD) have put out a call to rally the troops to help produce a 30 second PSA to help support a series of festivals taking place in the Fulton Mall. Here’s the official word from the mouth of the email:


The City of Fresno’s Downtown and Community Revitalization Department (DCRD) will be coordinating a series of downtown festivals on the Fulton Mall, and we need your help.

We’re looking for a local filmmaker to produce a: 30 second Public Service Announcement (PSA).

This will be a fun and exciting project that, with your participation we will help make Downtown Fresno the place to be this summer.  We are looking forward to hearing YOUR creative ideas on how to best promote this event.

While there is no monetary compensation for this project, you will receive sponsorship recognition on the official T-shirt, the video itself, and print advertisements that may be produced.  In addition you will of course be able to include this production on your own promotional reel.

These PSAs will be distributed to area television stations as well as YouTube (r), Facebook (r), blogs and other video venues.

If you are interested in volunteering your professional expertise to help build the fun and excitement of revitalizing downtown Fresno, contact Ray Arthur at 621.8358 or ray.arthur@fresno.gov

You gotta come through for your main man Ray Arthur, right? It’s 30 seconds to help grown the future of the heart of the city. Your grandkids will thank you when downtown Fresno in 2030 rivals that of of [insert hipster city here] and you’ll then realize it was all worth it, right before you close your eyes for the last time watching a Random Goodness video here on Dumb Drum. Oh! My bad, that’s how I predict I’ll be going out. But I digress! Let’s get some quality stuff drawn up and show what Fresno has to offer! Film… Film… Filmmakers! HO!!!
