 New stretch target

When we achieve our stretch goal we will host a premier where we will screen the documentary in a venue. We will screen some of the archive we have collected announce the winners of the raffle, have a few drinks and hopefully a few laughs.

The Film

Organised Chaos is an independent feature documentary currently crowdfunding which looks at punk in the North East of England. Featuring interviews with Mensi (Angelic Upstarts) Baz Warne (Stranglers) and Olga (Toy Dolls) to name just a few as well as giving insight into the D.I.Y scene with venues such as The Garage, The Bunker and The Station. 

The legacy of punk is something still discussed today with new documentaries looking at punk icons and fictional programs (including one to be released by Danny Boyle) telling its stories. But how did a genre which took the world by storm become such a cultural phenomenon and what happens when you look at that within the microcosm of the North East its punk performers and venues?


About us.

Directed by author and documentary filmmaker Rob Kilburn this documentary is his second venture into Crowdfunding with the first being the successful documentary Two Monkeys which looked at the rave scene in the North East.

Working alongside some great North East talent who have vast experience in videography and documentary filmmaking, having been part of many of Tyne and Weird's documentaries previously, filmmakers such as Isaac Johnson, Lewis Dodds, James Vardy and Troy Wilkinson have been involved in bringing this project together.


The Funding

While we have collected a great deal of never before seen archive of gigs and long gone venues in the NE there are other great bits out there which require a cost to licence. Having the funding will allow us to organise payment and get images held in press archives into the documentary. We will work with an animator to create a title sequence and professional artworks as well as produce limited edition DVDs as a reward for those involved in supporting us.

Our stretch target will allow us to host a premier where we can all get together have a few drinks, laughs and a watch of the documentary. 


Keep an eye on the Crowdfunder for more details and a trailer coming soon...
