Jason Elewski is watching movies for three days straight to kick off Chicago's wINDIE City Shootout.

One man, three days and a non-stop movie show--that was Jason Elewski's week. Elewski is a producer for Windie City Shootout – a film festival that challenges filmmakers to write, shoot and edit a movie in 72 hours. Elewski proved its feasibility with his own feat - watching movies for three straight days without sleep. On Wednesday, he reached the 48-hour mark and he joined Eight Forty-Eight with an update. The Windie City Shootout film festival starts Friday, Aug. 12. To watch a flick with Elewski, head to the Avocado Cafe and Eatery near Milwaukee and Western Avenues through Thursday morning.
