BATTLE OF THE DECADES!

Which decade of the Madison Scouts is the best? Both alumni and fans of the corps have very strong opinions. That’s because they are very passionate about the activity and there’s nothing wrong with that. We’ve decided to pin the different decades of the corps (alumni & fans) against each other to see which one can get a popular Madison Scouts song that appears in our movie funded the fastest. The race started on August 13th... Read More

The first film festival screenings of the movie, a new IndieGoGo campaign, and Mr. Smith goes to Indianapolis!

Growing Our Audience

It’s one thing to make a movie, but if not many people know it exists then what’s the point? Our target audience for the documentary are members, alumni, and fans of both drum and bugle corps and marching band. Ultimately it’s a movie that is structured to work for a wide audience so anyone can watch it and get ?something from it, but we need to primarily get people involved with the marching arts on board first. ?We talk to quite... Read More

Why Have the Rewards Disappeared?
