Realitywarp (1998) ORDER NOW
The production that brought us "out of retirement" and back into the world of fan video production! The vortex has been damaged, and the Sixth Doctor and Peri are helplessly trapped. Who comes to the rescue? A couple of actors named Nicola and Colin. The Official Realitywarp site features a full electronic presskit and more. Read reviews, see pictures or download other cool Realitywarp things on the Archive page.

Clue?? (1987)
A group of familiar detectives, secret agents and spies (such as James Bond, the Hardy Boys and Columbo) are gathered together at a mansion and are methodically killed off. Three different endings!
Thirteen Lives to Live (1986-1987)

Cabaret! (1986)
We took those familiar American convention cabarets and turned them into a Gong Show challenge!
The Chipmunkees (1986)
The Federation's homage to The Monkees is so similar in story and style it's uncanny.
Doctor Who and the Holy Grail (1986)
Popular short rewrite of Monty Python and the Holy Grail using Doctor Who characters and situations. Wait until you see the vicious Mara bite Jamie's head off!
S-A-V-E-W-H-O (1985)
Our most famous production features the cast and crew of Doctor Who trying to raise money telethon-style to ensure the post-hiatus continuation of the show. Great parodies ranging across the first 22 years of Doctor Who.
A Doctor's Carol (1985)
What collection of Doctor Who fan videos would be complete without a musical for the holiday season? A mysterious figure shows the Sixth Doctor his past, present and future Dickens-style.
Doctors on 33 (1985)
A collection of music videos with Doctor Who characters - doing the Time Warp, for example.
All Doctors Great and Small (1984)
What happens when one show gets mixed up with another? Characters from Doctor Who somehow find themselves stuck in All Creatures Great and Small trying to find a way out. Not your ordinary crossover.
Flake's 7 (1984)
The original classic Blake's 7 parody has Flake's crew searching for Star Un while Servaspam and Twavis relentlessly pursue them.
Never Say U.N.C.L.E. Again (Affair) (1984)

Clue 2 (1988)
Sequel to Clue?? featured a different set of investigative agents like Starsky and Hutch, Kolchak: The Night Stalker and Johnny Depp's character from 21 Jump Street being stalked in the woods by a killer. This project was shot and edited but remains in limbo.
Flake's 7 III: The Search for Flake (1988)
Final part of the Flake's 7 trilogy ran into too many weather problems and was permanently shelved. Part of the Dune parody scene was shot.
Zerva's People (1988)
A concept presented by Jennifer Adams Kelley at a meeting for consideration during our discussions on what to do next. The idea was turned down and ultimately the next production was Who on TV.
Who Glorious Who (1986)
Ambitious musical production that got through scripting and as far as casting and read-through before becoming an undead project. Why not a dead project? Because it's the title that always comes up as the joke, as in "Maybe we can finish Who Glorious Who this year."
Fawlty Tardis (1986)
Abandoned when the computer on which the script was stored was stolen. This story involved the Doctor Who production team shooting Shada on location in Torquay, Basil Fawlty mail-ordering a naughty film and trying to keep it a secret from Sybil, and the film cans for Shada and Basil's nasty getting mixed up, forcing the cancellation of Shada. Quite ingenious, it's too bad we never got to finish it.
The Doctor of Oz (1986)
This one didn't get too far into the first-draft scripting stage, but it involved Peri taking the Dorothy role (this was before there was an Ace), John Nathan-Turner as Professor Marvel, and of course the Tin Man was a Cyberman. You get the idea.
Doctorgate (1988)
Doctorgate (working title) was to be the companion piece to S-A-V-E-W-H-O. It took the Trial of a Time Lord season and placed it in the context of the Iran-Contra hearings that were commanding the attention of the world at the time. A now-famous quote from a Federation member helped us to wisely abandon this line of thinking and rewrite the concept into The Reign of Turner. The quote: "Who's going to understand any of this in England a year from now?"
Shada: The Ancient Law of Gallifrey (1987)
Shortly after we acquired a copy of Shada on bootleg videotape, we decided that we would be the ones to finish it. Actually, to reshoot it completely. We had the complete script transcribed by hand from the tape, and we did at least one read-through. Alas, this production was fated to be unfinished TWICE in its lifetime. And the BBC got farther than we did.
Doctor Who's Flying Circus (1989)
MUM and the Federation always wanted to work together, and this was the first of our co-productions. Basically a half hour of sketch comedy based on Monty Python including the infamous Battley Townswomen's Guild re-enactment of The War Games.
Black Adric (1989)
Our second and (to date) last co-production was based on the final episode of The Black Adder with Adric getting fed up with his treatment and enlisting the most evil beings in the universe to kill the Doctor.

FARCIS 23 (1986)
Spirit of Light productions made Chicago fans happy in 1983-1985 with The Ultimate Celebration, TARDIS 21 and TARDIS 22. Then they pissed everyone off in 1986 when they cancelled TARDIS 23 after tickets had been on sale for some time. The Federation came to the rescue to the best of our abilities. We rented two meeting rooms at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare (the rooms now used for the Video Room at HME/Visions) and held our own damn convention. We had videos, panels, a charity auction, dealers... and people with TARDIS 23 tickets who didn't know the "real" convention had been cancelled.
Farciscon (1987)
We enjoyed doing our previous convention so much that we decided to do it again, this time at the site of 1982's infamous "Sweatcon", the Americana-Congress Hotel on Chicago's lakefront. Modeled after St Louis' "Tardiscon" from 1986 in which they stretched a scarf under the arch, we attempted to stretch a scarf around Buckingham Fountain. Sure enough, we ended up on the evening news.
Mysterious Theatre 337 (1996-present)
Federation member Steve Hill was the dance DJ at Visions from its inception, but when dance attendance declined he stole concepts from other people to create a live performance riffing Doctor Who. Information on this year's show
