THE TIME IS NOW
the past is forever
What if a show as big as Breaking Bad
was made in Milwaukee?
Film Freed is obsessed with bringing the TV series Bleed Millions here to Milwaukee.
With the demand for original content on streaming services growing, now is the time for Milwaukee filmmakers to take flight.
With your help, we aim to see Bleed Millions playing on a top network or streaming service.
Just like how the major sports teams like the Milwaukee Bucks and Green Bay Packers elevate community pride, having a major TV series set here will be a game-changer for the Milwaukee culture.
We'll show the world that we have the diverse talent to play on the global stage. Show the world that we are a resilient, creative, thriving city while creating balanced film opportunities for all.
Who We Are
Film Freed is a nonprofit that produces films, documentaries, and TV while teaching the art and technique of film-making through hands-on, experiential opportunities.
What We Do
Film Freed helps Milwaukee filmmakers bring their projects to life by providing the training and support they need to be successful. But we can’t do it alone.
For over 6 years, we’ve made great films with aspiring filmmakers and helped hundreds of people get their films off the ground or across the finish line. But there is so much more work to do.
With the success of Bleed Millions, Film Freed will be able to:
Expand consulting services to serve more Milwaukee filmmakers.
Benefit a wider spectrum of artists and filmmakers.
Showcase what our city has to offer and put Milwaukee on the map as a thriving cultural epicenter.
