Cream City Soundcheck Production Assistant

Cream City Soundcheck is an exciting new musical documentary series created by students of UW-Milwaukee in collaboration with The Pabst Theaters Organization. Each video has bands exploring Milwaukees unique cultural landscape and performing at historic venues throughout the city. Designed as a way for film students to learn professional documentary skills through creative and practical application, the production of Cream City Soundcheck is overseen by doc|UWM - the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukees documentary center, housed inside the Peck School of the Arts Film Department. Not only does the creation of these videos help mold the next era of creative talent in Milwaukee, but they also help to promote Milwaukee as a vibrant, diverse, and artistic city.
