The latest up-and-coming independent film to attract our attention is Early Bird, written and directed by Andrew Flynn, and produced by Chris Nials.
Dealing with the concept of house-sharing, the film offers a dark but humorous take on the subject, exploring how mad it can be to share what is essentially your life and home with another person who you may have only just met briefly. Early Bird is based in Tooting which further adds to the realism as people in London areas tend to be more open about living in flat-shares due to the high living cost individually. The concept is actually quite clever, and in recent years an unprecedented number of recent graduates, young professionals and students have resorted to the idea of flat-shares as a way to get by and subsidize costs, and this strong and relatable subject matter is a great basis for film
Early Bird will soon be looking to build its distribution campaign, and we have to say, it looks like a thoroughly enjoyable and funny film with its dark elements balancing out the project perfectly. By basing the film around a concept that many people can relate to, it seems as if the film is poised for success amongst a wide variety of audiences, after all, most of us will have had some disturbing, mad or regretful experiences involving flat-sharing.
Keep your eyes peeled for the release of Early Bird, hopefully later this year, and be sure to check out the film on Facebook and Twitter!
