You'll get the entire place to keep, including 9 bedrooms, a tennis court, a pool, as well as the spaces that housed the UMRK, Frank's private offices, and even his private subterranean Vault. (Contents of the house not included, but we'll find a couple awesome things you can keep.) 

We know you've got a lot of questions, and we're doing our best to answer all of them. Check out our Complete FAQ, or get answers about:

We really suggest watching the video aboveIt's faster, easier, and more fun than reading this whole page!

Frank Zappa lived an insane life. Rock star. Artist. Composer. Activist. Talking head. Family man. Jokester. Absurdist. One of the greatest musicians who ever lived. Even if you don’t know anything about him, you’ve probably heard his name and seen his face.

And now, for the first time, we have something no one has ever had: 

Unrestricted access to his never-before-explored, private archives

We're at the brink of unlocking thousands of hours of unreleased footage, and hundreds of boxes of tape, and unnameable other stuff that has been literally locked away under the Zappa family home like a time capsule since Frank’s death in 1993.

It’s time to tell Frank's DEFINITIVE STORY, like it's never been told, and to bring some of this unseen material into the world. 

Waiting inside the Vault, there's more material than we could ever fit in a single film.. but there's a challenge. 

If we don't work fast, this won't just be our first chance to see what's in the Vault... it might also be our last chance.

See, most of the contents of the Vault exist in OLD, OBSOLETE and AGING MEDIA FORMATS: tape, film, video, paper, and other outdated forms of media that are deteriorating even as we speak. 

In order to use and share this stuff, we first have to access it, catalog it, find the best stuff, digitize and preserve it, and then edit it. And all of that takes time, money and patience.

That's why we're asking all of Frank's fans to get involved, and to help us get this done now

The more we raise, the more we can do... and now that we've passed our MINIMUM GOAL of $500,000, our challenge is to keep going as far as we can, so that we can save more at-risk materials and get more of the movie done. 

For those of you who decide to join me, save the Vault, and help tell Frank's story, I've got good news: you'll get a lot more than the satisfaction of helping preserve Frank's legacy. 

Whether you just want to follow along, or want a once-in-a-lifetime Zappa experience, we've got you covered with a ton of great, exclusive rewards, including...

  • TRACKS 10 & UP: A FRONT ROW SEAT to follow along as I start exploring the Vault. I have no idea what we'll find, but I know it'll be crazy... and that I want to share the experience with you guys! 
  • TRACKS 25 & UP: A DIGITAL VAULT PASS, granting you exclusive access to a backers-only archive of downloadable material selected from what I find in the Vault.

    And remember: the more we raise, the more we can save, and the more you'll get to see, hear and keep!
  • TRACKS 35 & UP: THE DOCUMENTARY that you're helping make, available as a digital download (Tracks 35+) and in a Collector's Edition DVD or BLU-RAY (Tracks 150+), packed with bonus material and limited edition packaging.
  • TRACKS 50 & UP: EXCLUSIVE WTFIFZ MERCH, featuring new artwork created just for this Kickstarter campaign, and never available again! It's like a killer concert merch table, without ever leaving home! Rewards include T-SHIRTS (Track 50+), POSTERS (Track 125+) and more.

And with the help of Frank's family and friends, we’ve got some incredible, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and rewards for true Zappa fans:

  • TRACK 2500: OWN FRANK'S STUFF. The Zappas have generously allowed us to offer a very limited number of items from Frank's private collection, including original filmstrips from the Vault and a few of his personal possessions.
  • TRACK 6000: EXPLORE FRANK'S VAULT. You'll get a private tour of the legendary Joe's Garage and the relocated Vault from me and Ahmet Zappa. Be the first person to see some of the unreleased material, then discuss it over a private lunch with me and my producing partner, Glen Zipper.
  • TRACK 7500: RECORD WITH FRANK'S GUITAR. Come play Frank’s guitar for a private recording session with Joe "Vaultmeister" Travers at the legendary Joe’s Garage!

So, who the fuck is Frank Zappa? Even now, 23 years after his death, the man is still a fascinating pile of contradictions. If you haven't watched the video, just consider these ten facts about Zappa:

1. He was one of the biggest rock stars of the '70s...
2. But he didn't do drugs. Ever.
3. He conducted and composed for orchestras ...
4. But he also went on national TV and played a bicycle.
5. He got banned from SNL...
6. But he was a regular on CNN.
7. He took on the government over censorship.
8. He basically invented Rock the Vote.
9. He was the face of an actual revolution in Czechoslovakia.
10. He almost ran for President in 1992.

And that doesn't begin to cover Frank's life, career, or prolific output as a performer, composer or visual artist. His work crossed genres. He made people uncomfortable. His ideas and attitudes made him revered by some, despised by others, and a source of perpetual fascination and inspiration... until, in 1993, his life was cut short by prostate cancer.

When he died at the age of 52, Zappa had already released 60 albums, and created enough music to fill 42 more posthumous albums... and counting! He'd also had four kids, influenced a generation of artists, scientists and thought leaders, and left his unique stamp on the world. 

And all of that? That's just the tip of the iceberg.

That's why this project is so important. Frank Zappa was a million different things, and for the first time, we have access to everything he kept in his private archives – thousands of hours of audio and video recordings, plus countless shelves filled with boxes of documents, photos, art and more. Using all of that material, I want to finally tell his definitive story, and help answer the question: 

Who the Fuck is Frank Zappa?

And, even better... we want you to join us. 

Frank Zappa was one of the most prolific artists of our time, and rows upon rows of floor-to-ceiling stacks of tape, video clips, film footage, and more, have been locked away under the historic Zappa house in the Hollywood Hills since Frank's death in 1993. 

No one has ever heard or seen the vast majority of this material, much less cataloged it, and it is literally crumbling against time in the Zappa's private archive: a massive underground storage chamber known as "The Vault."

By backing this campaign, you'll help us digitize and preserve (!) these archives for use in this documentary — not to mention for limited, gradual release and distribution, and the enjoyment of Zappa fans for generations to come. The more we raise, the more of Frank's unexplored archives we can save.

Hey, I'm Alex. I’m an actor / director, and in the last few years I’ve made two other documentaries about cultural influencers; Downloaded (about Napster) and Deep Web (about the hidden Internet). I’ve been a big fan of Frank Zappa’s music my whole life, but it took some time to realize that in addition to being a singular artist, he’s flat-out one of the most brilliant, hilarious, wild and fascinating renaissance men of the century. 

Shortly before she died, his widow Gail gave me unprecedented access to Frank’s life (and Vault), and her blessing to make the first all-access doc about Frank — a one-of-a-kind honor. For this project, I’ll be interviewing everyone I can who had any kind of connection to Frank, and painstakingly going through the Vault to preserve and archive the stuff I think tells Frank’s untold story best.

I've also written more about why I launched this project.

As a documentary producer who’s had the privilege of working on a diverse slate of films including Undefeated, All Things Must Pass, Deep Web, The Last Play at Shea, The Nightmare, and Foo Fighters: Back and Forth, one of the questions I am asked most is, “If you could make any documentary you wanted to do, what would it be?” My answer has always been the same, “The definitive, no-holds barred Frank Zappa doc.” Last year someone finally asked me a follow-up question that I should’ve already asked myself: “What’s stopping you?” And that, my friends, is where our journey began. 

It’s been a whirlwind for Alex and I ever since, working every day to lay the foundation of everything we need to make this dream possible. Now, together with you, I want to make a film that is not only a worthy historical document of Frank’s remarkable legacy, but also a kick-ass cinematic experience that no one will ever be able to put in a traditional documentary box.

Joe is not only a musician who's been playing with the Zappas (and other incredible bands) since the early '90s; he's also the “Vaultmeister” — keeper of Frank's archives, and expert on all things FZ. He has been the lone guardian of the Vault's material for years, chipping away at cataloguing and preserving what he can as well as co-producing the FZ delicacies released by the Zappa Family Trust.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risks and challenges we face aren't from this Kickstarter, but from the potential danger to the material in Frank's Vault if this campaign DOESN'T succeed.

If it does, we'll have everything we need to help #SaveTheVault, preserve some or all of Frank's most at-risk material, and to #TellTheStory.

    TRACK 100: MYSTERIOSO!

    We want some of our rewards to be just as surprising and unpredictable as Frank's life and work, so I love this reward:

    At this level, you'll send A MYSTERY BAG of all things Frank, filled with a random assortment of original and reproduced items taken from the offices of the UMRK, Intercontinental Absurdities HQ, and elsewhere. Basically, each bag is an absurd hodge-podge of ephemera from Frank's life, and the Zappas were kind enough to let us have (or reproduce) it, just for you.

    I won’t ruin the surprise and tell you what we're planning to include, but I WILL tell you that different backers will get different stuff. We've only got 5 of some things and 5,000 of others... so it'll all be totally random, but totally great, with a light dusting of cheepnis. I can't wait to start putting these together.

    PLUS, you'll get ALL OF THE REWARDS from TRACKS 10, 25, 35 and 50.

    Since TRACK 2500 sold out so fast, seems like lots of you dig the idea of keeping something that Frank owned. Now I've got something even crazier for you:

Each trunk will also come with a PERSONALIZED LETTER FROM VAULTMEISTER JOE, giving you some history about the specific items in your collection.

    There will only be 1-2 on these on Earth, and I can't wait to put them together. It's going to be hard to give them up, but I'm excited they'll have a good home.

    TRACK 25000: NONE OF THE ABOVE
    This is the strangest reward of all: for $25,000, you get ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. So, don't claim this reward, which is really just a way to tell you about:

    TRACK 9MM:
    LITTLE HOUSE I USED TO LIVE IN

    Our top reward so absurd, and so expensive, that we can't even OFFER it on Kickstarter… we have to list it on eBay!

    If one generous soul decides to contribute $9MM,* WE'LL be able to start saving The Vault and telling Frank's story RIGHT NOW. In exchange, YOU'LL get the ENTIRE LIST OF REWARDS above, and also...

    FRANK
    ZAPPA’S
    ACTUAL
    F*@%ING
    HOUSE.

    Seriously. You'll own 8,000 sq. ft of Frank's private abode, where he lived from 1968 until his death in 1993 -- complete with swimming pool, tennis court, recording studio space, subterranean vault, guest houses, and much, much more. The contents of the actual house aren't included, but all sorts of other insane rewards and experiences are.

    *To be 1000% clear, this $25K reward does NOT include Frank’s house. That’s part of our $9MM reward package — waaaay more than we can collect on Kickstarter. So, if you want it, go to http://zappamovie.com/house for all the details.

    SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY, YOU GUYS.
