Mad City Chickens Nearing Completion

The Mad City Chickens movie was set in motion back in the summer of 2005 outside Madison, Wisconsin when we attended a gathering hosted by two of the founding members of the Mad City Chickens group, Alicia Rheal and Brian Whiting. It was a conversation with them and other backyard chicken owners that hatched the idea for the film–a short film–no longer than ten minutes.

Now over two years later, the feature-length project (approx. 90 minutes) is nearing completion. A finished, although not final, version will start the submission process to film festivals before the end of the year.

He took some time out of his busy schedule today to join us in the studio and tell us a few humorous “chicken” stories from his childhood back in Africa.
