Are you an actor who wants to make a short film? Now is your chance. SAG-AFTRA is here to help you learn how to make your brilliant short film. Each session will be on a Monday night from 6 - 9 p.m., and is presented by members of the local independent film community. Here's a sneak preview of this four-week intensive series:
Week 1: Scriptwriting, fundraising and budgeting (Oct. 23)

Week 3: Contracts, locations, production (Nov. 6)
You're invited to attend the Chicago Singers Collective's debut performance of their original production OREO on October 23.
OREO will feature a wide variety of hit songs from the 1960s that are considered commentaries on the social climate of that era. And through these powerful songs, OREO will tell the story of the tension, battles and triumph of that era.
You won't want to miss out on this electric story and brilliant showcase of talent that parallels our social issues of the present day.
