CMM, CIFC meet June 15, 17

Champaign Movie Makers meets at least once a month to afford area filmmakers and talent an opportunity to discuss and join forces on the making of independent cinema in the area. If you are interested in being more “in the loop” if not directly involved with CMM-related productions, please visit and join their Yahoo! Group.

The next meeting will take place tonight,  Tuesday, June 15, 7 p.m., in a new location, Class Act Interactive, 114 S. Neil St., Champaign, IL. This month’s presentation led by CMM member Mike Boedicker will cover “music rights for the independent videographer. Find out all about clearance, composition rights, download music [sic], ASCAP, BMI, and the works” per founder Johnny Robinson; additional topics TBD.

And then, the Central Illinois Film Commission led by president Cameron Counts will get together Thursday, June 17, 7 p.m., at the Route 66 Hotel & Convention Center, 625 E.
