From 1985 to 1995, a monster movie show took the airwaves. Madd Frank Presents was a lovely campy program whose characters introduced viewers both young and old to the world of horror movies. It was a regional program…or so they thought. It wasn’t until years later that the cast began to run into people across the nation who recognized them even in TV markets that they were never supposed to be in. Call them outcasts, mavericks, comedians or oddballs – but, on top of that, they are legends who haven’t had the chance to tell their story…until now!
We present the story with a blend of classic archival footage and present day interviews of the cast (Madd Frank, Ichy Bod, Vanilla, Billy Jabber, Dr. Phil O’dendron, the Madd Programmer) and the fans. Let’s bring the cast back into the spotlight so that you can hear where they came from, where they are now, and what they think it all means.
It’s all about life, laughs, and Madd Madd love!
Madd Frank and crew are ready to tell their story. Help us reach our goal and find yourself the proud owner of some Madd cool collector's items. We only have a month to make the goal. Please donate, share, and share some more!
Risks and challenges
As with most creative projects, two challenges loom large: time and money. We have compiled an exciting amount of footage already. It is now time to edit it and we have set an ambitious deadline. We would like to have the documentary edited by September 2014. After that, we plan to debut this cut of the film in Fargo to a hometown audience with Madd Frank Presents cast members in attendance to meet their fans. At the premiere, we will be collecting audience reactions and stories about what Madd Frank Presents meant/means to them. This footage will ultimately be added to the final cut of the documentary since the show is as much about the fans as it was about the show.
In this short time frame, Arcadian Productions will need the appropriate equipment and resources to store and edit the film. Much time will be spent looking over the original tapes of Madd Frank Presents footage and securing rights to any possible music that will be used in the film. Each of these steps requires money in order for us to complete the film and make it look and sound the best it possibly can.
It is important for us to produce the best possible product for our audience and the Madd Frank crew. Thank you for helping us on this journey!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
