We like nothing more than to hear positive reviews about Mad City Chickens. But there is a contingent of folks out there who have all but given up on watching films, even films on subjects they might enjoy. Over the past three years, we’ve heard more than one diehard chicken owner or backyard gardener tell us, “I don’t watch TV and I don’t like movies!” As filmmakers, this makes it pretty difficult for us to reach our target audience, especially when our documentary on backyard chickens gets lumped into the same category as the latest over-budget Hollywood action film.
Yet, we chose to use (and have fun with) the most powerful medium on the planet--motion pictures. And there’s nothing more satisfying than to get a positive review from someone who would rather be out in his garden than sitting in front of a TV.
Thanks for the review Dave. Now shut off the TV and get back out to your garden!
