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.
