First Name Mishu
Last Name Hilmy
Headshot
Your Film Roles Writer, Producer, Investor, Director
Bio

Mishu currently writes, directs, and produces films of various lengths in Chicago; where the past winters have been so cold the only imaginable reason he has stayed must be undefeatable self-loathing.

He has previously lived in New York (Brooklyn and Binghamton), New Orleans, and Whitewater Wisconsin—where you can go to find cheese hats, Miller High Life, and rock bottom.

Prior to filmmaking, he had spent the past decade desperately seeking validation in a profoundly unsuccessful career in theater and comedy. His theater experience—which can only be described as the opposite of lucrative—lead him to writing and performing in an original comedy special ‘Trapped in the Netflix’, devising the “diluted social satire” play ‘Good Morning Gitmo’, and directing the interactive theatrical experience ‘Out to Get You’; which the Chicago Reader chronicled as “the sort of unwieldy mess only true ambition could create.”

Mishu is grateful to have taken a step away from theater and live performance to focus on filmmaking. Since the transition, he has written and shot six short films. He is now raising funds to shoot a feature film for a brilliant screenplay he has penned.

He is forever thankful to his partner Audrey, his family, and the casts, crews, and audiences who generously share their time.

First Name Max
Last Name DeGenova
Headshot
Your Film Roles Writer, Director
Bio

I am an independent filmmaker, screenwriter, poet, photographer, and musician. I am a native Chicagoan, currently living and working in the Ravenswood neighborhood.

I started making movies when I was 7. As a teen I dove into theater, poetry, piano, and photography. Then filmmaking re-emerged as my primary art form because I realized that it’s the creative culmination of all these fields.

I am a fiercely contemplative and introverted person, and it is ultimately reflected in my films: I’m interested in exploring solitude, romanticism, identity development, love & loss, and all of their intersections. I’m inspired by films that are unafraid to slowly gaze, to move at a human pace, and to draw the viewer into a kind of transcendent co-creation.

I’m grateful that in the last 10 years I’ve amassed a body of work that reflects my evolution as a human. It has helped me see myself. In the next ten years I hope to further blur the line between art and life, and to by extension create a space where others can, through narrative and character, witness their own humanity and growth. I hope that my work is as much of a balm to them as it is to me.

Bio
Joe Fernandez is a half-Cuban half-Irish (or Cubish) comedian and actor. Growing up in Texas he had an affinity for the sport of baseball and dreamed of one day playing for the Houston Astros (Sans using cameras to help his career.) When his body didn’t grow up with his dreams, he moved to the performing arts where muscles aren’t necessary.
 
Joe went to Marquette University and received the Chris Farley Scholarship for using humor in a positive manner. In his sophomore year he performed at the Kennedy Center in “Quid Pro Quo” which won the John Cauble award as well as the Jean Kennedy Smith award.
 
Joe performed in numerous productions while at Marquette including “Waiting For Godot” “The Odd Couple” and his self-written play “Programs” about the life of five sketch/improv comedians loosely based on the Second City. 
 
Credits include Chicago Med and understudy roles at the Goodman Theater and Northlight Theater. 
 
He also is an accomplished stand-up performing regularly at Chicago Laugh Factory, Zanies, Comedy Bar and the Improv Schaumburg. Joe has performed in the TBS Just For Laughs Fest, the Boston Comedy Fest, and was a finalist for the Andy Kaufman Award. 
 
Most recently his comedy album “Ugly” debuted at #1 on iTunes. It can be streamed on Spotify, Amazon, Apple and his special of the same name can be watched on Youtube.

Virgil Wayne is an American film director, cinematographer, editor, writer and occasional producer. Originally from Chicago, he joined the U.S. Army, serving in Daegu, South Korea and Fort Carson, Colorado, first with the U.S. Army Signal Corps, then U.S. Army Special Operations Command. He was later commissioned into the U.S. Air Force as a Space and Missiles Operations Officer specialising in the Global Positioning System constellation and Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. He transferred to the Air Force’s Public Affairs branch, serving at the headquarters of Air Force Space Command, followed by assignments in Belgium with NATO, then the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command.

He received an honorable discharge from the military in 2006 and later accepted a civilian assignment with NATO in Kabul, Afghanistan, as its Chief of Media Assessments, at the headquarters of the International Security Assistance Force. After leaving NATO for the second time he stayed in Afghanistan and founded the country’s first business-oriented magazine and a boutique public relations agency specialising in strategic communications in crisis and war-torn environments. Some of his clients included the U.S. Army, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the U.K. Department for International Development and various commercial and non-governmental organisations.

Several years later he served as the Chief of Corporate Communications for an Indonesian-owned international palm oil conglomerate based in Liberia, West Africa. He later served as a Senior Communications Officer for the United Nations Regional Service Centre based in Entebbe, Uganda.

Known primarily for short documentary, commercial and corporate films, since 2018 his films have covered a broad range of narrative, action, comedic and experimental subject matter.
