Patrick Creadon and Tom Palazzolo salute Media Burn

We’ve been telling you a lot about why we think Media Burn is special. But don’t just take our word for it: today, you can hear from two of our favorite people.

Patrick Creadon is an accomplished documentary director. He is best known today for his critically-acclaimed films Wordplay and I.O.U.S.A., but his first job out of college was for the FITV-produced series The 90’s, which he credits as helping to shape his career.

Tom Palazzolo has been making offbeat independent films ever since he came to Chicago in the 1960s. Chicago is a frequent subject in his films, which often focus on the small rituals and pageantries of everyday American life. A number of his works are preserved in the archive.

Also: tune in to hear Tom on Rick Kogan’s “After Hours” program this Sunday, September 21 from 9–11pm on WGN!
