Frank Rogala produced the critically acclaimed “Won’t Anybody Listen.” Won't Anybody Listen, a feature length documentary, shot over a period of seven years, chronicles the lives of brothers Frank and Vince Rogala and the members of Orange County's perennial rock band "NC-17". 

 Humbled by the brutal realities of the record industry and the corporate business machine,  these courageous musicians are forced to balance their desire for financial success with their need for artistic redemption. A searing indictment of the record industry, Won't Anybody Listen pulls no punches as it destroys the popular myths about the music business and the Rock & Roll dream.  The film received a theatrical release by Seventh Art Releasing, it was picked up by the Sundance Channel and is currently available  exclusively from Netflix on DVD.  Financed solely from small donations the film's triumphant reception by audiences and the press helped it receive theatrical distribution and television and DVD distribution even though it disastrously opened the week after September 11th in New York City.
