After months of success in Hollywood, the 7-Day Shorts project is coming to the Chicago Training Center! Students, graduates, alumni & staff of The Second City are invited to participate every Tuesday night at 10:30pm in the brand new de Maat Theater. Each week, a set of original, two-minute comedy films are screened, a suggestion is acquired from the audience, and a group of Training Center faculty will improvise based on the suggestion. That same suggestion will inspire the following week's new set of short films. All filmmaking teams require at least one member of the extended Second City family. Final film DVDs are due each week by 6pm Monday at the Training Center office.
For the first week, 2/9, we will screen previous submissions from the Hollywood version of the 7-Day Shorts project. Tickets are $10, $1 for Training Center students & grads. The de Maat Theater is on the third floor of Piper's Alley, 1608 N. Wells. Space is limited!
