I’d like to welcome the great Lauren Tharp to the team who’s making the Indie Film Wisconsin Film Festival happen!
She’ll be doing the editing for the blog posts I do to make sure the grammar and spelling is correct. This, of course, is key for ensuring the best possible communication of information posted on the webpage.
I have known Ms. Tharp for many years, and I’m so happy she has come aboard this project.
Let’s have Ms. Tharp tell us a bit more about herself! And, please, make sure to visit her website if you ever need help with editing work.
A Message from Lauren:
Wow, Wayne! Thank you so much for the stellar introduction.
My name is Lauren Tharp. I’ve been writing as a freelancer since I was a teenager (I’m in my thirties now), and my love for writing slowly became a love for editing. Now, working as an editor is my primary focus.
I run a multiple award-winning website for writers looking to go freelance called LittleZotz Writing. It’s pretty darn cool. Check it out!
As far as Indie Film Wisconsin goes…
I grew up in the film industry (both of my parents were special FX artists) and I’ve always had a deep passion for the art of filmmaking. When I met Wayne nearly a decade ago, we hit it off immediately and never ran out of things to talk about.
Wayne Clingman is a fascinating man, and is incredibly driven. His various projects never cease to amaze me and I cannot WAIT to see what he does with the Film Festival! I’m honored to be a part of his team.
Stay tuned!! More coming soon.
The Indie Film Wisconsin Film Festival can not happen without sponsors.
We have many opportunities for sponsorship; from basic electronic ads on the festival web page, to ads in the printed festival program, to sponsoring the Opening Night Party, Closing Night Party, Breakfast with the filmmakers, as well as other opportunities.
Of course, there is more than one way to support the festival. We are open to barter as well.
If there are other opportunities that you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to inquire! If we may be so bold to say so, we believe that the Indie Film Wisconsin FIlm Festival will be the best film festival the state has seen. With your help, we can make it truly an event for the ages!
Thank you for your consideration!
Hit the link below to go to Film Freeway and enter your project today!
We look forward to seeing it!

Jason Love and myself were on TV talking about our mafia documentary : The Milwaukee Mob https://www.wisn.com/article/milwaukee-mafia-film-profiles-mob-boss-frank-balistrieri/19640839
Channel 12 did a good job.
Was quite the interesting weekend, The Local Paper then a TV Station before Jason and I showed it to a filled room in the City of Racine. Nice crowd other then the surviving son of Frank B. coming down and being let’s say a bit upset.
Earlier in the year I made this fun reel.
