About this project

In May of 2010, Whaddya Gonna Do About It? Productions shot a short film called "Big Change". This fabulous little story stars Thomson Lee Madden, a 9 month old baby who is so full of happiness, love, and joy that he spreads it to everyone who comes in contact with him! Thomson's poor, clueless parents are taken on an emotional rollercoaster as he is abducted by aliens & an emotionally distraught woman, recovered at an Indian restaurant, and taken by a detective into a film noir world of intrigue. Thomson's magical presence heals broken hearts, melts cold hearts, and inspires dance and joy wherever he goes. Finally, Thomson is returned to his parents who have learned their lesson, and the audience is inspired by the big change that pure love can bring into your life.

This adorable movie was shot on the Red camera by a dedicated group of professionals on a shoestring budget. Now this film must be edited and visual effects created so that "Big Change" can be unleashed on the world! "Big Change" will play in film festivals, television and eventually the internet.

Whaddya Gonna Do About It? Productions has created feature films, shorts, television, music videos, and radio programming that have received awards and great audience reaction. "Big Change", written and directed by John Madden; was inspired by the birth of our son, Thomson Lee Madden. For more information about our production company, please visit our website:

$7,000 - editing, color correction, music & sound mix
