Wild Bill's Dark Ride Paradise

Wild Bill's Dark Ride Paradise will be a documentary film following Wild Bill and Dark ride artist Chuck Burnham as they create the worlds largest walk through fun house in Middletown CT.   Along with the fun house Bill will be re installing a number of old dark ride amusements and other oddity's effectively transforming the land behind his Nostalgia store into an independent amusement park.  I aim to capture this on film while also exploring the history behind dark rides, fun houses, the carnival and the creative process that moves them.  We have great characters to follow and a few special guests to pop into the film.  At the end of the day I feel this will be a powerful story about the pursuit of Wild Bill's dream and about the iconography that is the Dark Ride. 

In order to create a film on a professional level image sound and lighting have to be spot on, it is a big project which will result in hundreds of hours of footage to cull through and dozens of interviews, along with the construction at Wild Bills we aim to film other people in the carnival/amusement industry then take the finished film out to the festival circuit and to market.  The funds we raise here will allow us to rent necessary equipment, get the film cut together and take it out to the public.
