Local Filmmakers Seek Funds for Festival Entries

Dustin Hahn

Local film company Whiskey Neat Productions has recently finished its newest short film titled Tonight Was. This film is about a woman named Julia who goes on a blind date one night, but it doesn’t end as she expects it to. Tonight Was was directed by Matt Dreier and Matt Troge and made waves of approval at the Wildwood Film Festival in Appleton on Mar. 8. While it didn’t win any awards, there was an incredible response from the audience. Several viewers expressed interest in the film being shown at other film festivals. With this encouragement, Whiskey Neat Productions launched a Kickstarter on Mar. 24 in an attempt to raise $1,200. This money would help with post-production costs, festival entry fees, and advertising and material costs. They are especially interested in submitting Tonight Was to various Midwest film festivals, to help showcase the talents coming from this part of the country. Be sure to check out the Kickstarter page, where you will find information about the film, incentives for pledging money, as well as a sneak peek into the world of Tonight Was.
