The 5th Annual Patrick Lives On Film Showcase, sponsored by Resolution Digital Studios and Cinespace Film Studios, took place at Resolution Studios on Saturday, March 12, 2022. The organization was founded by Patricia Frontain, whose 20+ years in the film and television industry as a script supervisor is highlighted by her current work on the NBC series Chicago P.D. Special guests among the capacity crowd included Chicago Fire star David Eigenberg.
This fundraiser served as an exhilarating way to hang with local Chicagoland film industry professionals while helping celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Patrick Lives On. Attendees relaxed while enjoying complimentary food and cocktails provided by numerous Chicago fine eating establishments. Raffle prizes included camera packages, lighting, audio and casting packages.
The film showcase for the evening brought a familiar face to the screen. Chicago Fire star David Eigenberg, who plays “Hermann” on the popular NBC series, was among the lead cast of the short film Unknowing, which premiered at the showcase. A set of commercials, feature teasers, short films and videos rounded out the lineup.
