Tour of the Maker Space!

The Great River Film Initiative checked out the new Dubuque Maker Space at the Carnegie-Stout Public Library!

Here’s the Tour that we went on January 3rd – they have a ton of resources for local filmmakers. They have a pretty decent HD camera that can be rented out, decent audio equipment for voice overs, a green screen that you can use in the space, and 3D printers that you can use to create props and much more!
