Chicago's Motion Picture Community
Posting Access:
Anybody , Moderated
This is a community for people and film in Chicago; Working professionals, afficiandos, students, and amateurs alike. This community should serve as both a resource and a place to discuss the latest and greatest. It's all so very Web 2.0.

If you're looking for advice, resources, information, contacts, co-workers, or assistance, technical or otherwise, then by all means post. If you've got more than enough of the above, then by all means post. If you've discovered a great location, found a deal, are looking for clients, have equipment to sell, or are looking to crew up for a production, then let us know about it. If you're looking for collaborators, underlings, or unsuspecting slaves then let us know about it. If you've got a script that needs polish, a reel to highlight, or an upcoming screening, then let us know about it.

Information about screenings, film festivals, theatres, movie reviews, and other great tidbits is welcome here. If you're looking for someone to hold your hand in a dark auditorium, argue about the ways in which Stanley Kubrick is the greatest filmmaker of all time, or to buy your extra tickets, then let us know about it.

There are a ridiculous amount of schools in Chicago. Share your observations about higher eduction, teachers, classes, or events. If you attend a school that has function others might be interested in, post!
