Josh and Jamie started off in Greensboro and they are going to be in Chicago soon! You can follow their adventures by going to FILMBLAZER!  We can’t wait to see the first film in their tour.  It won’t be much longer.

What are we doing here in Chicago to help make a T3 film here.  We’ll keep an eye on them as they get closer and closer to Chicago. This will be a great chance to make new friends and new filmmaking partners. Let’s get on it gang!
