When Hollywood comes to Chicago for its locations or unique production capabilities, Rick Moskal eventually gets involved. Rich is the Director of the Chicago film office and I photographed him for the CS Mens Book magazine. We shot on location at Gig Rig where the film and photography industry hires motor homes and production support vehicles.
I really enjoyed meeting Rich as we’re both big fans of the Starz drama series Boss about a corrupt and intransigent Chicago mayor who’s secretly living with a fatal neurological disease.
On a brighter side, Rich and I had a great chat about the direction of the film industry in Chicago and some horror stories about a Bollywood action adventure filming in town that was giving him some heartburn.
