interview with Mad City Chickens filmmakers


Tarazod Films is going to debut Mad City Chickens at the 2008 Wisconsin Film Festival at 9:00pm on Thursday, April 3 (advance tix sold out, rush admission at the door, tho).

The Madison (Wisconsin) Daily Page has a great interview with MCC filmmakers Tashai Lovington and Robert Lughai wherein we find out they both had backyard chickens at various points in their lives, why they added a giant chicken character to the documentary, and the hardest part to cut out of their 40 hours of raw footage to get it down to the finished product at 81 minutes.

Can't wait to see it when it swings out West. If anyone sees the premiere next week, please share a link to your review!

Maybe next year they can show this movie at the Chicken Fest. :)

Also check out Edible Portland for a short chicken film and story.

Thanks for keeping me updated on all the chicken news.

Wow, we hadn't heard of the Chicken Fest before. Sounds like fun.

As soon as we have some time to catch our breath after the premiere of Mad City Chickens, we'll look into the possibility of having a screening at next year's Chicken Fest.
