The music business incubator at Fort Knox Studios is rocking.
In the year it’s been running in Chicago’s Old Irving Park neighborhood, 2112 has programmed 75 education sessions, held a music hack-a-thon that drew 100 participants and hosted international trade delegations, and taken its act on the road to South By Southwest.
“Looking at what’s been done in the past year, I can’t image what this is going to be in five years; what this is going to be in 10 years,” said 2112 director Scott Fetters.
Well, with Fort Knox’s recent launch of The Hangar, a 7,200-square-foot film and video production space, it’s getting into the video and movie business. The goal: To support small filmmakers.
