The Plan (subject to contact with real life)

” No plan survives contact with the enemy. ”  Helmuth von Moltke the Elder

“So this is the plan for the production film. ” Wayne Clingman

 

All joking aside we have a plan for the production of the films , late this week should see the launch of the Indie Go Go this is to gather needed funds to pay for the costs of creating the films, from obtaining B-Roll, Stock Footage and obtaining the Freedom of Information Act requests with The FBI and DEA, we may also start the process to get records from The State of Nevada   Gaming Control Board. The last part I have tried before and lets just say wow… .

The Milwaukee Mob Editors Cut will be the easiest to get done with only content to add we may want to bring Gavin Schmidt Author of The Milwaukee Mob to add some background to the tale of Milwaukee Phil.

The Milwaukee Mob II Frank Balistrieri Goes to Vegas will take longer to get out the door since information we plan on obtaining with the FOIA to the above groups will be needed. but by the time the Editor’s cut is done we should have it. 

We can do a lot of the filming during the time we are waiting for the records so it will not be like we are sitting on our hands.

Both “Should be done around 3/2019. Subject to contact …

Why do I make Documentaries?

 

Why do I make Documentaries?
Easy, there are many very interesting stories about the Mafia/Mob that should be told many of them from the S.E. Wisconsin, North East Illinois area.
One of the major players in this is of course Frank Balistrieri even with “The Outfit” having control over what was going on in Milwaukee (and if there is a “Mafia” in Milwaukee its run out of Chicago.) Frank B was far more powerful helping IMHO the Outfit/Kansas City more into the Casinos via the Teamsters pension fund loans.

He deserves more then a few paragraphs in books or stories posted on line. The least I can do is make a few documentaries on him.

I hope I can count on you in to help make this happen.

What motivated me to write this post was I picked up the book The Dark Heat of Hollywood by Douglas Thompson, from my local library and well, in a few works it sucks, from repeating what I see as BS stories to as I read some of the pages almost taking lines by lines from other books, it is what it is and perhaps I should write books right ?  Funny I know better I am a poor writer but I can put together a team of Film Makers.

We need more truthful work done on what I see at least a  part of major American history.

Budgets and Opportunities

So after talking with Mr. Love , the Editor of the Milwaukee Mob we have come up with a budget of about $1500. for the Milwaukee Mob, the Editor’s Cut.

The Editor’s Cut is expected to run about 60 Mins and bring another story into the documentary that did not make the first film.

As for the Film The Milwaukee Mob II : Frank Balistrieri, Goes to Vegas, the story of the much understood little known role that Frank played in bring the Mob into Vegas will be looked at.

Should the lawyers allow we would like to talk about how in our humble opinion, that as alleged  Allen Glick was perhaps not Mr. Innocent as the media has made him out to be.

We are not trying to rehabilitate Frank Balistrieri, but in a way give him more credit in making Vegas what is became.

As you we hope have read of the stickers and T shirts you can buy to make our next projects happen and with out your help this take more time to happen,there is also sponsorships as well as advertising opportunities available.
As The Milwaukee Mob got over 50,000 views in a a few months this be a great way to get your product out in front of an engaged community looking to buy male focused products, as well since much of Milwaukee Mob II Frank Goes To Vegas talks about sin city be a fantastic oppertunty to bring men with CASH to say your Mob Tour or Casino be it in Vegas or in the Chicago area.

Film Project : Milwaukee Mob Editors Cut

With the 1st anniversary of the release of the film The Milwaukee Mob our documentary on the last and most powerful leader of that group ,   Frank Balistrieri coming up in January 2019 the Editor Jason Love and I, are planing to to a Director’s Cut of the film. 

This film would include footage not used in the first release  as well add more on the famous underrated Milwaukee Phil : Felix Alderisio.

As Milwaukee was under the oversight of the Outfit, I see that doing an Editor’s cut under the Chicago Outfit Blood in the Streets brand fits well.

Mr. Love and I thought the story of Milwaukee Phil is interesting, needed to be brought up in the context of an Editor’s Cut.

This project should be done if funding allows early Spring of 2019.

Documentary Project : Frank Balistrieri, Goes To Vegas

On the heels of the documentary The Milwaukee Mob, where we looked at  Frank Balistrieri, the last major Boss of the Mafia, this film Frank Balistrieri, Goes To Vegas  will look at what we here feel is the misunderstood story of Balistriri role in the Mafia’s getting into the financing of Casinos in Vegas.

What role did Frank B play in the idea of major mob influenced investing in Vegas casinos ?

Who did Frank B use as sources of money for this investment ?

How did the Mafia work behind the scenes to protect and profit from this investment ?

How did this fall apart ?

What happened to the major players ?

This film will be a feature and be shared with interested parties via VOD outlets or Cable stations.  “DVD’s” with bonius content will be offered to be purchased.

More details as they become available

Its a crazy world

Long story short, I fucked up and somehow was unable to see this was still a working web page. Only by blind luck did I find out that this was the case.

I know I will have to get a SSL quickly will have one and installed by Friday. Might be why I was unable to to see this page on my system ? So I know I will need to get that and installed by the weekend,

My fault for whatever happened  hope that the SSL will stop it from happening again.

Thanks for understanding, could be far far worse just happy that its not.

Say hi to our star Shanta Pasika

Ms. Pasika from Wisconsin has long been an actress in local Indy Film and TV productions.

She is a big fan of classic horror film such as the Thing as well the gore horror films of  today such as Serbian Film.

Like myself, she had little idea of the history of the Mafia in Southeastern Wisconsin until  Shanta and I met and she saw my film on the Milwaukee Mob.

A quick study and very interested in the subject, looking forward to looking at the homes owned by/connected to The Chicago Outfit, in the Lake Geneva WI area.

Interesting to note that Ms. Pasika in the past had heard that Al Capone may had bunkers dug in the Burlington WI area to store Beer to be shipped into the Milwaukee and Madison area, she plans to see what notes she still has on this in an effort to incorporate  this story into the history of Lake Geneva
