If content is king, then Mother Cabrini is…

We’re finishing up shooting here in Chicago and moving into the raising-money-for the National Shrine phase of the Saint Frances #Cabrini documentary
If you can help us spread the word that’d be great!

Chicago Indie Filmmakers…the 3rd Coast?

Why so few Chicago filmmakers at the major film markets? And don’t say the cost!!! Our lack of participation always seems to place our filmmaking scene behind those of our colleagues in LA & NY.

Chicago filmmakers…where’s the party?

Does #film #networking in Chicago lead to any substantial connections? Is Chicago filmmaking taken seriously by the industry? Does investment capital look seriously at IP here? It’s always New York or LA…why not Chicago?  #RushStreet #WestRandolph #RiverNorth  bit.ly/ChgFilm
