Frankie say let's make a Rockumentary! Frankie Banali of QUIET RIOT opens his personal home video vaults and his life, for a rockin' documentary.

Frankie Banali is a world renown drummer you probably remember from the 80's band QUIET RIOT. He was in the band for 27 years and the last 13 he was also the band's manager. His career took a major sideswipe when his singer Kevin Dubrow died three years ago. As a single soccer dad in the suburbs, his long hair and tattoos frighten the neighbors, but to other drummers he's a hero. At a cross roads in his life he must forge ahead and make a new life for himself and his daughter. Lots of never before seen home movies from QUIET RIOT's heyday, interviews with dozens of rock stars, deeply personal footage and a few surprise twists. The most real, raw rock and roll documentary of it's time.

This film takes a real journey back through time to the decade of debauchery and decadence. Real home videos shot backstage, on the tour bus, in the recording studio, and in hotel rooms with one of the 80's top platinum selling bands and most notorious bad boys. Never before seen footage from the milestones in Frankie's long career in music and his personal life now. Funny, and deeply personal and poignant exploration of Frankie's long time friendship with his bandmate Kevin Dubrow. The loss of his close friend and his career as he knew it, and his life after Kevin. Follow his journey at his current moment of truth and beyond.

We are looking to fans and kickstarter users to help us finish this film. We have much done already, we're about 75% finished. We need at least 20K to finish shooting and editing and for festival entry fees. We plan to shoot for the rest of the summer and edit this fall. The clip above is just a small teaser of old footage. We are posting clips here in the updates just about every day for backers. For a pledge as little as ten bucks you get access to all of these. We have enough material to do this all the way to our deadline of 7AM PST Sept 3rd.
