We are excited to announce that Melina Kolb’s first feature-length documentary film, Remember Me Sue, was selected to air during primetime this fall on WTTW – PBS Chicago! Melina began filming in 2004 while still in college, and over the years has kept track of Sue and her work with urban youth in Chicago. Thanks in large part to her successful Kickstarter campaign, she was able to edit over 60 hours of footage in the past year and show WTTW what she was capable of.
In this letter of support from WTTW Senior Vice President and Chief Television Content Officer, he writes:
“WTTW is very selective about which independent producers to broadcast on our air. Melina Kolb is a special filmmaker with with the ability to tell a story that is important and engaging to a wide audience. I plan on broadcasting Remember Me Sue in a prime time slot on WTTW and hope to work with Sue to make sure that aggressive promotional efforts are done to attract many viewers to the broadcast.”

Christopher House is a non-profit organization that provides educational programming to at-risk children across the city of Chicago. Melina filmed at several of its locations to show how children of all ages are receiving a quality education.
We are thrilled to now offer clients footage shot on one of the latest and best DSLR cameras for video, the Canon 5D Mark III. This camera opens up the possibilities for filmmaking by utilizing the same lens used for photography, making higher quality images and creating the beautiful “blurry background look.” Can you tell the difference? Over the next few months, we will be accumulating the supplementary accessories and additional lenses in order to transition the bulk of our cinematography to the new camera.
Thanks to everyone who pitched in and spread the word about Remember Me Sue, the documentary being produced by Tellit founder Melina Kolb! Work is already underway to complete the film. Melina has hired L.A.-based editor Alex MacKenzie as Supervising Editor for the film. Alex has edited two Roger Ebert Top 10 Documentaries and is currently working on a new HBO series. Shooting is estimated to be 75% completed. The next scheduled shoot is with U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan at his office in Washington, D.C.
