Jason Elewski — Producer of the Windie City Shootout

The WC Shootout is a contest where participants will write, shoot, and edit a short film in 72 hours.  We talk to Jason as he stays awake for 72 hours watching movies in the front of Avocado Eatery on Milwaukee Ave.  Why?  If the participants of the Windie City Shootout are going to lose sleep, why shouldn’t Jason?

Jason tries to stay awake for three days straight.
