Happy Holidays Everyone!

 An update is long overdue, our apologies! I hope you have had and continue to have a wonderful holiday season. 

We continue to plug away with the project - sound bites are coming together, the editor is ready to rock, and we've been shooting staged "documentaries - MAD style" to introduce each decade of MAD. I've included a series of photos showcasing our intro to the 1950's and how MAD was perceived as a pathway to destruction of America's children.

We have a handful of interviews yet to conduct of MAD related folk - they are in the planning stages. We recently flew Senior MAD Editor Joe Raiola to the Detroit area for his interview and it was a good one. We haven't nailed down any celeb interviews yet - that's been a tough nut to crack.

We've been planning out post-production, fx, and opening talks of music. Once editing fully kicks in we will be in high gear.

Finally,  I would be remiss on this Christmas Day to thank you once again for the support you have given us. I'm proud of the work we've done so far, and I can't tell you how many people's eyes light up when we tell them what we are working on. Almost everyone has a childhood story to tell about fond memories of MAD. 

Be safe and have a happy New Year.

      I don't know if you're at this point yet, but do you plan to present at Comic-Con this summer? It would be a terrific promotion for the film!

      Why do I feel like you could get John Waters for it?

      For celebs, have you tried reaching out to Mark Evanier? I found your project because of him. Good luck and happy holidays!
