Bucky on Parade
Directed by Clint Thayer
USA | 27 min | 2019
Bucky on Parade was a free public art event featuring 85 life-size Bucky Badger statues throughout Madison and Dane County May 7–September 12, 2018. Local and regional artists transformed these Bucky statues into unique works of art.
The Madison Area Sports Commission produced the event, with support from the Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau and in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Wisconsin Athletics, and Wisconsin Foundation & Alumni Association. Event proceeds supported Garding Against Cancer, Madison Area Sports Commission and other community charities.
The Book of Birdie is a peek in to the mysteries and strangeness of coming of age as a weird girl. Storytelling through visuals, psychology and the imaginative power of magical realism is the heart of my approach. The film has an all female cast and 70% female crew, and seeing better representation in filmmaking is a cause I’m passionate about.
