New Link added: PROJECTMILL

In this post I'd like to introduce everyone to a relatively new creative organization that Cincinnati is certainly lucky to have. Its called PROJECTMILL.
Here's what its all about:
"PROJECTMILL is, more or less, a creative collective of all types of
artists. It's not a club, it's not a company. But it's a network.
The point of it is to be an outlet and an opportunity for artists
(presently just in Cincinnati, but it could expand) to be able to
bring a "project" to the table and seek help, guidance, advice,
support, opinions, equipment, or whatever else from all the other
"projectors" (that's what PROJECTMILL members are called) in the
network. We want productive people encouraging productive people to
be productive so that cool stuff gets made.
PROJECTMILL promotes collective creativity. It is an umbrella under
which a whole bunch of different creative people can stand. It's an
institution, like a university, and all these people have different
majors and different interests and different friends, but everyone's
diploma says PROJECTMILL."
PROJECTMILL is currently made up of the following members: Mandy Levy, Pete Ohs, Joshua Mattie, Kevin Bayer. They've already come up with a very impressive collection of videos, mostly showcasing various bands that they came across at the SXSW music festival. There's lots of great stuff on the site already and I'm told that there will be tons more in the near future.
I highly recommend checking out their site. If you have any questions or would like to get in touch with the projectors themselves feel free to post in the comments section or go to their site for contact info.
On a side note, I'd also like to mention that Mandy and Pete are going to be moving to OTR in the next couple of weeks. So, now OTR will have two new awesome creative minds walking the streets. Additionally, I've been told there may be some videos promoting OTR and its history coming out in the near future. Keep your eyes open for that!
