Time is fleeting.
(40 years of) Madness takes it’s toll.
The Rocky Horror Phenomenon is an international documentary about the show, the movie, the original cast and crew, and the devoted fans who’ve made Rocky Horror the undeniable, seemingly timeless, sensation it still is, even after so very many years.
We’re going to look deep within the creation of the show and the movie. We’ll be speaking with all available cast and crew members. And we’re going to timewarp the audience back to the early seventies, to that amazing stretch of creativity between 1972 and 1974, when the exceptional story of Rocky Horror with all it’s characters and lyrics was written by Mr. Richard O’Brien, up until back to where the film was shot in that shaken up old castle in southern England.
Our goal is to leave no question unanswered – paying heed to even the most obscure threads, to even the tiniest shreds – in order to discover, flesh out, and illuminate the incomparable phenomenon of Rocky Horror.
The original stage- and the later film production took place more than 40 years ago and, so, most of the original cast and crew are already in their late sixties or beyond. Therefore, there could not be any more opportune time than right now to get most of these people in front of the camera.
We’re well aware that over the past four decades there are few questions that haven’t been asked and almost no story left untold about Rocky Horror. But these anecdotes and bits and pieces of information are spread all over the place… cloistered away in interviews, books, magazines, films and, of course, the Internet. Our aim is to gather all these facts, reassemble them, and solve the puzzle in order to answer the one big question: the why and the wherefore of the Rocky Horror phenomenon. We’re decidedly not interested in rehashing what’s already been written and filmed. We want to dig deep, asking the right persons the right questions to uncover the as yet, unknown, or not widely-known, stories.
An additional focus of the documentary is the younger generation of fans, with their view of, and experience surrounding, all things, Rocky Horror, and why the show and the movie still, so remarkably, has resonance for them today. We’ll also create a ‘Par-tic-i-pation Program’ – employing all social media to involve fans the world over in the documentary.
After pre-production and some initial production in late 2014, principal shooting will run from February through April 2015, followed by three months of post-production and clearance. The release is scheduled for September 2015.
