The Milwaukee Show Launches Successfully

MILWAUKEE (October 24, 2008) — Nearly 600 people attended last night’s inaugural program of Milwaukee Film. The Milwaukee Show, announced the award winners at the Discovery World – Pilot House last night to a packed house of filmmakers and attendees.

The Milwaukee Show Jury Award Winner:
“I Want You To Know”
Directed, produced and edited by Derek Kimball
Written and produced by Matthew Konkel
A bated tension and quiet disclosure provides the milieu for this father and son camping narrative about reserved honesty and stunted youth.

The Milwaukee Show Audience Award Winner:
“The Waiting Room”
Directed by Tate Bunker
Produced by Mark Metcalf
Written by Emily Downes
In a room full of strangers, people come and they go…while a young woman waits.

Filmmakers Derek Kimball and Matthew Konkel were awarded the first ever Jury Award prize, a $20,000 filmmaking production package to help them shoot their next short on film.

Milwaukee Film’s next event is the much anticipated Milwaukee premiere of “Song Sung Blue” on Thursday, November 6 at 7:15pm at the Oriental Theatre. The multiple award winning “Song Sung Blue” goes backstage into the personal lives of Lightning & Thunder, a Milwaukee-area husband and wife singing duo who pay tribute to the music of Neil Diamond.
