Every year the Iowa Motion Picture Association gathers to hand out awards to the best filmmakers, producers, and creators in Iowa.  This year, one of the winners comes from the Quad Cities...and they rock.

Who are the Iowa Motion Picture Association?

They have been in Iowa for 30 years as an "educational and networking association to promote the film and media production skills of members, provide networking and professional development opportunities, mentor amateur, and professional filmmakers, and work with partner organizations to promote filmmaking in Iowa."

So they are there for all the filmmakers of Iowa big and small to create and have a place to collaborate.

Ghosts Of The Station

Today we will be looking at three ghost sightings, and the spots they were seen at.

These three "Ghosts" could all be the same one or three different ones. Though I still think the Music video ghost is by far the creepiest. As far as we know that was the only figure we ever caught on film, and not just in a picture.

Hidden Pizza Gem 1 Hour Outside The Quad Cities

Having the best pizza in the Quad Cities has always been a fierce competition. I mean we even have our own version of pizza for goodness sake. While there are some incredible pizza joints in the Quad Cities, there are other pizza places that you need to visit. Geno's Pizza in Preston, IA is one of those places. It's less than an hour's drive from the Quad Cities and it's a spot you need to try.
