I just wanted to give everyone an update on the next Detroit ghetto video. I filmed it last week and got some great footage, and also tracked the route on my GPS which will hopefully (providing I am able to figure it out, editing KML files is new to me) be turned into a google earth tour so that you can see where exactly I went. I got some footage in the Packard plant as well as an abandoned high school, in addition to the usual residential devastation.
I really don’t know when I will be able to find the time and motivation to edit it all as I lost my mother on New Year’s Day, just hours before I was supposed to fly back home. It’s been an incredibly tough time for me this past week and to be honest, editing this video is not ranking real high on my list of priorities at the moment, I’m sure you all understand. I just wanted to say that it has been filmed and I will get it up here as soon as I can.
Only 2 weeks until Christmas, and for me, that means a trip back to Detroit to see friends and family for the first time in 2 years. That also means that I will be filing A Tour Of Detroit’s Ghetto: Part 4, and I wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions for the next film. One thing I will NOT be doing is filming the “nice” areas of Detroit, so you can just forget about that right now… it’s called A Tour Of Detroit’s GHETTO for a reason. I would think that the title would give that away, but some are not so quick to grasp the concept.
Now that we have that out of the way, I am open to suggestions as to certain things you would like to see in part 4. If you know of a particularly ghetto area, street, building, etc, I want to know about it.
Accompanying part 4 will be a playable google earth tour that will take you down every street that I drive down so that you can see exactly where I have been. This should be a pretty cool feature, I have been fooling around with it for a while now and I think you will like it.
Shoot me a comment if you would like to see something in particular this time around.
Here are some more videos that show the ghetto neighborhoods of Detroit. These are not my videos, these are mine: Detroit Ghetto Videos. Many of the Detroit ghetto videos I have seen on youtube have some of my footage in them, apparently people just splice it into theirs without giving me any credit. Oh well. These are just a few that are worth watching, despite some shitty rap music for the audio tracks on a few of them.
