"Fleecing Led Zeppelin" filmmakers want your help!



The Story

Sometime during their last sold-out concert at Madison Square Garden in 1973, more than $200,000 was stolen from Led Zeppelin's safety deposit box at the Drake Hotel. The money has never been found.

We came across this gem of a story at a party at our friends' Zachary and Stella's earlier this year and decided right then and there that this mystery needed to be resolved. If not for the fans, then for lovers of rock n roll. So, being the crazy kids we are, we wrote a script, cast some pretty fabulous actors and assembled one of the tightest, most talented indie crews around, and as you read these words, have literally just wrapped on the filming of our movie.

Fleecing Led Zeppelin is our take on a true story that's been sitting in the dusty files of Rock n Roll history for 40 years. It's a short film that will pay homage to Led Zeppelin and their fans, as well as everyone who just likes a rip roaring good story with snappy dialogue.

Filmmakers Jackie Maw Tolliver and Gabriel Tolliver have completed filming and now are currently on a campaign to finish the movie.

Donating to their crowdsourcing page at Indiegogo will help pay for all that back end stuff like Post-Production (i.e. Editing, Motion Graphics, Title Design, Color Correction, DVD Authoring and Duplication, Sub-titling, Sound Design, Soundtrack composing & recording), Film insurance, Film Festival entry fees, Marketing/Promotion and Screening Venues.

They will even give you great Fleecing Led Zeppelin-branded swag.

In 1973 someone stole $200,000 from Led Zeppelin. Forty years later, it's just turned up.
