I speak a lot about supporting our local artist and one way I do that is to write about them. In doing so I try to introduce you to artists who are in your own backyard, who are trying to succeed in doing what they love and, at times, have also made a decision to establish their business here in there own town; Chicago, Chicagoland, outlining suburbs...Illinois. Today I have an artist and business who you should meet.

Solo Picture Studios is an independent production company that was created by Jonny Diaz. Being a Miami native, who is now a resident of Chicago after graduating from Columbia College in Film and Video, he has established Solo Picture Studios as an up and coming production company by directing and producing music videos for bands such as Board of Governors, Frey Geoffreux, and Ryan Stone Music as well as making the short film Who's Steven Shubert along with the web series The Steven Shubert Show. Now Solo Picture Studios has decided to take on an ever bigger project with making a feature film titled Won't Go Quietly.
Won't Go Quietly is a story about a couple who are in their late twenties who are trying to decide what to do with their lives as they fall in and out of love. It started out as a short film and evolved into a major film project that Diaz has decided to make the film Solo Picture Studios first feature film. It is now in the stages of sourcing for funds through Indiegogo and can use some of that local support. Indiegogo is just one of the ways that beginning artist and production companies can get support for their projects. After putting as much of the funds he could gather to put together a short film, Diaz and Solo Picture Studios are now turning to those who will support this endeavor.
I commend Diaz because it is rare nowadays for artist to pass up the temptation to go to major film or even music hub cities such as Los Angeles, New York or Tennessee and stick it out in a place like Chicago that has a creative community of it's own that I believe can rival any one of those cities I've just mentioned. So go over to Won't Go Quietly's Indiegogo page and support if you can and be sure to like them on Facebook to keep up to date with new info and events. You can also connect with them on their Youtube page and Twitter (@jonny305diaz) as well.
As always, good luck and The Local Tourist and I will be keeping our eyes on you to let our readers know exactly what's happening in your world.
