Chad Vader

Not so long ago, in a local grocery co-op

In July of 2006, Madison filmmakers Aaron Yonda and Matt Sloan contacted the Willy Street Co-op about filming a short about Darth Vader's younger brother, who worked at a grocery store. The Co-op is always interested in supporting local art, so a shooting schedule was worked out for after the Co-op closed at night. Less than a year later, episodes of "Chad Vader - Day Shift Manager" had been seen by millions of people. Here are some behind-the-scenes photos taken by Amber McGee, the Co-op Art Coordinator, along with links to episodes from season one of "Chad Vader - Day Shift Manager". All of their episodes, plus other productions can be found on their website
