Indie Film Wisconsin Film Festival plans to have a day and time set in the Kenosha area to host a meeting to discuss the state of film incentives in Wisconsin, and the steps needed to go forward to bring this matter to the state legislature, by the end of the week. The plan is to invite leadership from both parties, as well the Governor’s office, to attend. To that end we are insisting that all in attendance are treated with respect.
This is an effort to do what we can to move forward, since for whatever reason any previous effort has gone nowhere.
We are aiming for the latter part of May or early June.
FYI: I was the man who called the first meeting of what would create the film incentives then form the first group to be Film Wisconsin/

Wisconsin Filmmaker to Watch For
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!

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.
