Peep this -- way to go, Milwaukee Film. And for the rest of you, now you know what it costs to get an award named after you. Yep, apparently right around the 200k mark. Not bad.

Chicago area based film production company, Strata Productions, Inc., in association with Sacco & Vanzetti, LLC and NGNM, Inc. is gearing up for production this summer on the feature film No God, No Master. Milwaukee, Wisconsin has been a first choice location for Chicago Writer/Director Terry Green since the inception of the script. The city's rich history, vintage architecture and Lake Michigan's horizon are the perfect backdrops for the 1919 period locations, which simulate old world New York City.
BONNAROO 2009Jun 19th, 2009 by Howie Goldklang
In this edition: NYC love, 19-year-old stoners, watching David Byrne's stuff, The Dirty Projectors, a high school reunion of sorts - and so much more.

The TCD Editorial staff found this crazed dispatch, like a signal from a jam-band-packed corner of outer space, buried at the bottom of the email heap upon arrival at the office this morning. Sounds like quite a time. We've also taken the liberty of bringing you highlights from Howie's Twitter feed, so you can enjoy the madness, even if you're not the Twittering kind.

Here they are: the first five film announcements for the first-ever, breathlessly-anticipated 2009 Milwaukee Film Festival. Who knows what we can tell from five films out of what's likely to be more than 100, but this diverse and cosmopolitan selection of screenings: a supermarket comedy from Uruguay, a clandestine documentary about the 2007 uprising in Burma and an exciting frame-by-frame restoration of Akiro Kurosawa's Rashomon.

Easy Otis & ThirdCoast Digest are going gonzo style deep into Bonnaroo, posting Twitter and blog updates 24/7 from June 10-15. Who know's who we'll meet: artists and filmmakers from the Third Coast? Lifer waitresses at road side diners? Scary people at 3am? I can't wait either. It's all going down, live and direct. Set the guns to stun.
