Production[edit | edit source]
Principal photography commenced in 1992 in Florida with the Miami Dolphin Cheerleaders. Over the next 26 years, parts of the film were shot in Tennessee, California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and the District of Columbia. It was shot on 35mm, 16mm and parts on super 8. It was transferred to BetaSP and edited on video and then transferred back to film. A workshop production was screened at Cannes in 1994 and it won awards at Houston and Charleston Worldfest. It became caught up in distribution "hell," went through three film distributors and was never released. In 2017, Keeley and his wife and creative partner, Stephanie C. Lyons-Keeley and Producer Craig Dobson decided to write additional material to make the film relevant as both a social and political satire relevant to present day. Jack Plotnick and Charlie Dobson reprised their characters in the new material.
Reception[edit | edit source]
The project is presently being considered for a Guinness World's Record for longest production time. It has accrued many Film Festival Laurels to date including: thirteen for Official Selections and eleven Awards.
Of these are the Independent Short Awards; The Rome Prisma Awards; The Monthly Film Festival; The Bronz Award at the Mindfeild Film Festival Albuquerque(NM); Royal Wolf Film Awards and The direct Monthly Online Film Festival.
The film is set to premiere on September 26 2018 at the Bethel Cinema in Bethel, CT
