Dick Biondi Film
Now I am dedicating my life to telling this incredible man's story. Not only because he is Mr. Rock 'n Roll DJ, but because he was one of the most unique radio personalities of the twentieth century. And because he is one of the most beloved. He's been called the greatest rock 'n roll DJ in the world. Dick Biondi is a living legend who's impact on music can be heard in the soundtrack of our lives. Now in his eighties Dick doesn't want to quit; he says he wants to die with his headphones on.
My story is about what it was like growing up with the voice of the Wild I-Tralian on transistor radios tucked under our pillows. It's about the many artists Dick nurtured, and the kids who's lives were touched by him. It's also the story of how different radio was and how it was for young wannabes to become recording stars. Many of the Chicago cornerstone artists are in my film, and I've had the pleasure of getting to know them and to interview them. What a journey this has been for me, getting to meet so many of the recording artists I grew up with!
After 3 years of collecting interviews, I'm ready to start assembling my movie. It's exciting! And I hope you'll be part it. This film is gonna rock!
This next phase consists of writing the script and editing together a 10-minute "screener" that will be presented to donors to raise money to complete the film. This means months of post production work with an editing team which includes post production costs and licensing fees.
In this campaign we are hoping to raise at least $15K which will pay for:
• writing & creating a 10 minute Screener
• campaign fees
This film is the culmination of my life's work. It's my dream and I'm not gonna stop until I get there. So thanks from the bottom of my heart for being part of it.
Love and Gratitude,
