CorradoMooncoin. Distinctive stories are what drive us.

We tell quality stories for screens of all sizes.

Whether streamed on a phone or projected in a grand movie house, a great story will always be a great story. Distinctive film and TV is what drives us.

We want to work in Chicago.

Why? Chicago is talent rich—an acting mecca with extensive production resources. Chicago is also a beauty with compelling locations (and a beast when you need something grittier). And Chicago is a willing business partner. We’re proud to have had a leading role in the city’s thriving film industry, and we continue to be rewarded with enduring professional relationships.

We know how to do it.

Surprises make life interesting. But with our 40 years of combined experience, we’ve seen and handled challenges. Take comfort: we weren’t born yesterday, but we understand what’s coming. We’re ready to meet the expectations of modern audiences.

Thieves Quartet

Joe Chappelle
Director
Colleen Griffen
Producer

"Add first-time writer-director Joe Chappelle to the list of talented young filmmakers who find neo-noir film’s textures and terrains irresistible, and use the genre as their low-budget path to self-expression and gainful employment. Theatrical numbers and good reviews should provide a modest send-off for the video release, and a bigger boost for Chappelle’s helming career."

Variety (Steven Gaydos - Vice President, Executive Editor)


"... edgy little crime thriller, Thieves Quartet drives a familiar road, where quirky, down-and- dirty crooks conspire and connive, and ultimately square off over their ill-gotten gains."

Variety (Steven Gaydos - Vice President, Executive Editor)

"Thieves Quartet is ... 'better than Reservoir Dogs'."

Joe Bob Briggs, The Movie Channel

"Although a standard genre movie with film-noir overtones, it nevertheless has a conviction that is missing in many of its slicker Hollywood forerunners."

NY Times, Stephen Holden
