"Giant Chicken" sequence from Mad City Chickens

Mad City Chickens is our documentary from 2008. It's about backyard know...they're pretty humorous animals if you spend anytime around 'em. So during pre-production, we decided that we wanted to keep the movie lighthearted, to break things up...with a giant chicken (which was inspired by the work of artist S.V. Medaris). And if we're doing that, we might as well throw in a "mad scientist" as well.

It been almost ten years since we shot these fantasy sequences. The professor was played by our good friend Colin Cameron, who recently passed away. The original clip is about 2:30 minutes and appears about three-quarters of the way into the movie. Then the story was concluded with another sequence that ran during the end credits. Both segments are now shown below in a contiguous manner.

The documentary originally premiered at the Wisconsin Film Fest on April 3, 2008 and then in DVD form on March 23, 2009.

The other players included:
  • Patrick Aspinwall...Lab Assistant #1
  • Justin Riley...Lab Assistant #2
  • Nancy Rost...Piano Player
  • Stephanie Wisniewski...Sidewalk Onlooker
  • Craig Johnson...Narrator
