CHICAGO DRAWBRIDGES      A HATCH WERKS FILM

ABOUT the FILMMAKERS

Stephen Hatch - Kartemquin & the Community Film Workshop
Chicago filmmaker Stephen Hatch, the Producer/Director of Chicago Drawbridges, was recently accepted into the Diverse Voices in Docs program at Kartemquin Films. In collaboration with the Community Film Workshop, this program provides a series of workshops to support professional growth, artistic community building, and networking for Chicago's South and West side filmmakers.  These workshops work with up-and-coming Chicago filmmakers on project development, storytelling, ethics, fundraising, and distribution to promote minority filmmaking and help get great storytelling heard.
Hatch Werks LLC
Founded in June 2011 Hatch Werks LLC is the collaboration of Chicago filmmaker Stephen Hatch and Chicago bridge historian Patrick McBriarty to produce Chicago Drawbridges and create Hatch Werks Films.  Working together on a previous business project developed a mutual trust and respect.  Development of this documentary was sealed in the fall of 2010 during a boat trip down the Chicago River to discuss the project and tour the bridges.  Soon thereafter a budget was developed and the making of the film began in earnest, which was just completed in January 2013.
