Frank Zappa Movie Maker Offers Frank's House
Winter has said he's looking for the money in the next month. Ambitious, but so far he's raised nearly $200,000. His film is planned to be titled Who The F*@% Is Frank Zappa. Winter says: "Other docs have tried to tell Frank's story but we've got something no one's ever had - we've got thousands of hours of new stuff to look at.
"Frank kept pretty much everything but no one outside the family has ever had permission to use it - until now. We're allowed to use everything - but before we can do that, we have to find out what's here, digitize it and make sure it's in a form we can use."
Winter continues: "All these archives are crumbling against time - they're eroding to dust so this isn't just our first chance to find out what's in here - if we don't move fast it could be our last chance too." Winter is offering backers a range of incentives, from Zappa ringtones through to private recording sessions.
