Chicago Overcoat


Last night I did another volunteer stint with Chicago Filmmakers Co-Op. Tricia came with me and we not only set up the bar and beverages but got to meet a lot of great folks including two young filmmakers who have made a movie set in town called Chicago Overcoat. Can you guess what a "chicago overcoat" is? These two guys, John Bosher and Chris Charles graduated from Columbia and wrote a script with such good characters they got some major actors to become interested in being in their movie. Their talk last centered around how they conceived of their whole art concept married with a solid business plan. It was a very positive and interesting story. I loved their trailer and their promo pieces and can't wait to see the whole movie. These two guys are forces to be reckoned with and I look forward to following their work.

Interesting time that you had!
I had a good summer in the studio.
Now it's back to school and less time but hope to get a few more done, ha,ha.

Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long)
so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying
your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for novice blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.
