CHICAGO – Local filmmaking is thriving, thanks to the many creators who choose to make independent movies in Chicago. Co-directors Stirling McLaughlin and J. Wilder Konschak (also writer) brought their cast and crew to the Windy City to make their comedy, “Cold War.” The film made its digital debut on April 6th, 2018, and will be available on iTunes, Google Play, FandangoNow, Amazon, Vudu and more.

The premise for this relationship comedy is familiar to anyone who has done some coupling. Jon (Michael Blaiklock) and Maggie (Madeline Walker) have just taken the step to move in together. While the boxes are still unpacking, each of them gets the dreaded “raccoon flu.” Deathly ill together, they find out things about each other that are both funny and dark. The supporting cast includes Antoine McKay, Gail Rastorfer and Scarlett Harper.

In the following Podtalk, co-directors J. Wilder Konschak (speaking first) and Stirling McLaughlin talk about the inspiration behind the film’s situation, and the variable factors of micro-budget filmmaking.

  • ThroatPunch

    CHICAGO – The provocative title of Nothing Without a Company’s new world premiere stage play, “ThroatPunch,” does not contain that particular fight technique. But it does have standout performances by the three person cast, as they make their way in Chicago, circa 1983, amid their emerging twentysomething punk rock attitude. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through June 3rd, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Jesus Christ Superstar, Lyric Opera

    CHICAGO – As a wee lad, I would often go into my parent’s record collection. One day, out of the blue, that brown double album with the gold embossed angels appeared, like a gift from the divine. “Jesus Christ Superstar” began as a record album “rock opera” in 1970, evolved to a Broadway show and film, and then was interpreted through a myriad of stage revivals over the years. The latest is an exciting piece of stagecraft at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. The show has a various evening/matinee run through May 20th, 2018.
