Alpena- Back in January, Zach Irving watched his series takeoff at two different film and video celebrations. The first installment of “Michigan Micro Adventures” debuted at both the Alpena Fresh Takes Video and the Thunder Bay International Film Festival. The series looks at different adventures throughout Northeast Michigan. Hiking, kayaking, and biking are just a few of the activities that Irving captured this past Summer. All four parts follow Irving’s father and brother.
“To see them just on the screen is just really rewarding to see that because we are used to having those adventures and not many people that are from this area or are visiting even know those places are here,” said the filmmaker Irving.
Irving partnered with the Alpena Convention and Visitors Bureau to help bring his dream to life. The CVB partnered up with Irving Entertainment to secure a Michigan Reciprocity Grant to fund the project. With multiple screenings of the first episode in the books, the public gets to check out all four parts on April 11 at the Alpena Public Library. The event kicks off at 6:00pm.
