Call this “Organized Chaos.” Following the receipt of a $45,000 grant from Group W Cable in 1982, Executive Producer, Sheldon Altfeld set out to create as many programs as he could in as short a time as possible. So, for a total cost of $950 per episode and a crew of 12, they shot 47 half-hour programs, in three different locations, IN SIX DAYS — at the rate of eight shows a day — integrating music, titles and captions live on-set, with no post production necessary. Needless to say, the crew didn’t speak to Altfeld for several weeks after that. Among those seen in the picture are Scott Berg, Mike Stone, Laura B. Ripplinger and Kevin D Mills.
