Behind-the-scenes on the set of PBS Director’s Cut

In late October 2008, we appeared on the Wisconsin Public Television show Director’s Cut. We talked about our documentary, Mad City Chickens, showed clips from the film and even had live chickens on set. The episode is still online at the Director’s Cut website.

Before and during the taping of the program, a member of the PBS crew shot some “home video” type footage of the set, the show and the chickens. WPT has now uploaded this footage on youtube so you can get a behind-the-scenes look as Director’s Cut goes to the birds, err, chickens.
