I've been contemplating waaaaaaaay to long on what to write for this update. It's been a few months since you've heard from us. I know, and I'm sorry.
It's been a time of chopping and slicing at a great deal of material - over thirty interviews, receiving MAD related photos and home movies from all over - a mesmerizing collection of various MAD trips, old office photos, and family photos of the folks who brought us MAD, researching old news and television interviews, and playing perhaps the longest game of phone tag with a handful of contacts who are trying to line up celebs for us.
I like my updates to demonstrate great progress - and while the edit is coming along and I think it's looking great (compelling for the MAD fan and fun for the casual reader), I don't really have anything of a blockbuster nature to report. Thus my longer-than-need-be delay in this update.
We're still looking for MAD related photos, we could really use any help with researching old video - right now it's team ME trying to track down any footage, and that just takes me away from producing and editing. Hit me up if you have any experience or contacts in archival footage searching!
Normally, sifting through someone else's vacation pics has all the makings of a coma inducer. This, however, has been exhilarating for me. Finding the right place for these in the movie is not as easy as it seems. Let me leave you with a selection of photos we've received, mainly from some of the MAD trips.
Thanks for reading and supporting!
