Iowa Filmmakers
We're Nice!

The Iowa Filmmakers Team, circa 2015

Iowa Filmmakers was a collaboration between a group of film lovers who came together to boost the filmmaking profile of the state of Iowa during the 2010s. We learned a ton, had a few hits, a few misses, and a lot of fun together. We did a few client projects, but most were just for the heck of it. Those projects are still available to watch on Youtube.
