Take Talks is a panel interview and networking series in Chicago that's goal is to encourage you to take your career back into your own hands and discover actionable steps you can use in your film career. We interview and learn from successful filmmakers in Chicago who have been creating your favorite films, web series, and shorts. This series is a wonderful opportunity for networking in a relaxed environment and meeting other like-minded individuals.

Join us for an in-depth discussion on Content Creation and Production!
You have an idea you're excited about, but now what? How do you actually go about creating it? We're going into a deep dive on how to take a film or web series from idea to completed project.

How many people do you need on your crew? What does each crew member do? What do you do about budget (or NO budget)? We'll be working with three Chicago filmmaking experts to unlock the mystery behind creating your own content so that you can leave this event with actionable next steps for your project. Featuring a guided panel discussion, an open forum Q+A where you can ask whatever questions you have, and a no pressure networking environment where you can meet like-minded people who are also looking to create independent content in Chicago.

This month's Take Talks panelists:
Ricardo Gamboa (Creator of web series "Brujos")
Michael Glover Smith (Writer and Director of "Mercury in Retrograde" and upcoming feature "Rendezvous in Chicago")
Grace Hahn (Producer of feature film "Princess Cyd")
