Lets welcome Paul Peterson

Mr. Peterson will be part of Milwaukee Mob II Frank Goes to  Vegas
Paul Peterson is from the Southwest suburbs of Chicago.  He enjoys films about the Italian Mafia because of the epic narratives (with warring families, and all), and because Mafiosi are outlaws who make up a secret society, and seemingly aren’t confined to the same rules that law-abiding citizens are; thus, Mafiosi exist in kind of a dark fantasy world.
In short:  For a film goer who works an average 9-5 job, films about the Italian Mafia allow the viewer to experience being part of a dangerous, but potentially thrilling, world, without having to suffer the real-life consequences.

 

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 …

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
