THE GOODIES- THE MOVIE: THE PERKS ARE NOW LIVE! MAKE YOUR DONATION TODAY TO MAKE THIS VENTURE HAPPEN!

From the crowdfunding website...




The Goodies -The Movie
To celebrate their 50th anniversary this is the world's first feature documentary on The Goodies!


Overview
Finally telling the story of The Goodies. IN THEIR OWN WORDS. YES THAT'S RIGHT. More relevant today than ever before...with chart-topping hits...politics ahead of their time...and a style of comedy that's never been rivalled. It's the story we've all been waiting for. Everything you ever wanted to know. Coming to a screen near you in 2020.

When Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie were asked by the BBC to create a show that would be accessible to the mainstream, they thought they’d only last one series.  So they decided to have some fun and make a show for themselves.  Something that made them laugh - hoping that we’d laugh too.  Throwing into it every comic device they’d loved as kids, and with Bill writing some very witty songs: they called themselves THE GOODIES.    
They saw their comedy as a way of telling the truth about the world - about politics and civil rights, inequality, celebrity and the system in general. They were anti-establishment in their views but very silly in their humour.    
When the first series aired in November 1970, we tuned in.  10 million of us.  We laughed so much that by 1982 we’d watched 76 episodes of the show.  We couldn’t get enough. 
So for any fan who still wants more, this is their story.  The bits before, the bits during and the bits right up to now…a tale of epic proportion, fifty years in the making and NEVER BEEN TOLD BEFORE, well, not quite like this anyhow.

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

Well, the video says it all really.  By backing this campaign you’ll be helping us tell the story we’ve all been waiting for… The Goodies THE DEFINITIVE STORY like it’s never been told.  And that’s because they’re the ones telling it - Tim, Bill and Graeme are on board to tell their no-holds barred, in-depth story for the very first time. 
We’ll be bringing unseen material into the world as we scour every archive library and attic out there, looking for Goody gold.  Hopefully footage you’ve never seen before and audio-taped interviews that have only existed in journalists' basements up until now. 
With your help, we’ll be showing as many clips from the episodes as we can.  It’s a numbers game: the more money we raise, the more clips we can license.
We’ll be interviewing all those people that were part of their journey, telling stories that have never been heard before.  Anecdotes, memories and laughter.
How are we going to fit it all into 90 minutes?  We’ll do our best to tell you an incredibly unique story, hopefully one with a few surprises for even the most knowledgeable fans. 

OUR AIM FOR THIS CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN…

... is to get this film started, to get the DEFINITIVE STORY OF THE GOODIES into production. We can film the 'Super Chaps' in late summer, begin to tell the GOODIES' story with the most important contributors of all. With this compelling footage, we can show TV networks and home video distributors how good this can be, and secure the financial support necessary to complete the movie.  
For those who help us, you will not have to wait until the movie is made to be able to enjoy knowing more about the GOODIES as the £100,000 raised lets us produce an exclusive live online Q&A with Bill, Graeme and Tim, to happen in autumn 2019! We're also making available exclusive rewards for our supporters (see the right hand of this page) that will be shipped if we hit our target.

WHY DOES THIS STORY NEED TELLING NOW?

Chances are, if we don’t tell this story now it will never happen, because a lot hinges on their 50th anniversary next year.  That’s what will give us the buzz around the film, get the press talking and the publicity machine whirring.  Everyone loves a milestone anniversary, so we have to aim for it.  If we miss it, the opportunity could be lost.
That's why we're asking Goodies fans to get involved, and to help us get this done now.  It really is up to you.

HOW MUCH DO WE NEED TO RAISE TO START PRODUCTION?

The more we raise, the more we can do.  £100,000 means we can start shooting the interviews, access rare archive footage and photographs and start putting the film together in the edit suite.
The chart below details how this budget will be spent and includes the exclusive live online Q&A and merchandise rewards.
As we said, the more we raise, the more we can do.  

WHAT ARE THE REWARDS FOR OUR SUPPORTERS?

For those of you who want to help tell THE GOODIES story, start scrolling through the REWARDS and choose which one suits your budget, then make a pledge. (We’ll only collect your money at the end of the campaign, if we hit our target). You can only buy one reward but you can upgrade to another level of reward at any time.
