Employment Through Breakwall
One of the greatest tragedies of filmmaking in the Midwest is that the best talent is constantly leaving for the east or west coast. The Midwest has some of the best training programs in film and video production, however, the perception exists that graduates have to immediately head to New York or Los Angeles to make a living.

Breakwall wants to join with other film production companies in the Midwest in breaking this perception.

We are looking to bring in and hold on to this talent through great projects and appropriate compensation. Potential crew members should submit a cover letter, resume, and reel to us through the Contact page.
