"20 Years of Madness"

Tweetable Logline: The eccentric creators of a Metro Detroit 90s cult Public Access TV show reunite after 20 years to make a new episode.

Elevator Pitch: "20 Years of Madness" is a feature-length documentary following Jerry White Jr., founder of the Public Access TV Show 30 MINUTES OF MADNESS, as he leaves Los Angeles and returns to Metro Detroit to make a new episode of the 30MOM on its 20-year anniversary. Jerry reconnects with the friends he grew up with as they discover whether the magic of their show was a fleeting youthful experiment or a creative community they will share for the rest of their lives.

About the Production:  When I found my subjects I saw myself in them. I too had been hospitalized for mental illness and had been at the mercy of drug addiction. And I'd had a tight-knit group of friends who inspired me in my youth, but with whom I've since grown apart from as our lives went down starkly different paths. By sharing the stories of these individuals, I hope to broaden our understanding of what it means to be on the outside looking in, as I once was, and to help those on the inside remember to keep looking out.

Current Status: Post-Production. Raising funds for sound design & mix, music composition and rights, Color Correction, E&O insurance, legal fees.
