‘Madness’ is the world’s first full length feature film created entirely
by one man, Geoff Searle.

Following the death of a father he never knew, ‘Madness in the First Degree’ is an off beat
fantasy-adventure which follows Tommy, a young downtrodden filmmaker from America who
inherits a house, three brothers and the formula to insanity. As his new ‘family’ unwittingly
expose Tommy to ‘concentrated madness’, he has only 48 hours to escape from his own
imagination before going insane forever.

‘It is extraordinary!’ says DAVID SILLITO - BBC NEWS

From Costume to Camera, from Acting to Editing, from Script to Score and Special Effects,
Searle has independently financed and produced a complete 90 minute British production.
Searle has travelled extensively over the past two years with camera in hand. When not on
the road, Searle would shoot on his own hand built sets and on land surrounding his home
near London, England.
A self taught filmmaker, Searle dabbled with production design and special effects before
moving on to direct and produce television commercials and documentaries.

Through sheer determination, Searle is proud to present his debut film,
‘a roller coaster ride with more twists than a bag of lemons!’,
you havn’t seen crazy until you’ve seen
‘Madness in the First Degree’.
