A post-apocalyptic future. It’s inevitable, right? I mean, after all, the collection of feature films that are dedicated to showcasing a dark and dank future is rapidly becoming to most prolific. We all know that heading our way is a copious amount of viruses, death, destruction, government dissolve and zombies; lots and lots of zombies. But what would happen if the apocalyptic future took place in the past?
That’s what The Fitzroy is all about!
Written and directed by Andrew Harmer and produced by Liam Garvo and James Heath, The Fitzroy looks genuinely like the next best independent movie. Just heading to their website, you’ll see that they have scrutinized over every detail, building this cinematic treat that is past and future combined. There is an astuteness too it that has us clambering with excitement to watch it. The buzz around The Fitzroy has been immensely high. In December 2012, they successfully funded the movie by Kickstarter. As it stands (or floats) it is the most successful film campaign in the UK, raising 120% of its target and then some.
Look, anything billed as black comedy immediately has my vote but there is something uniquely special about The Fitzroy that has us begging for the film to come soon which thankfully it is. The devilish work and intricate details that the filmmakers have put into the film makes it float on this air of awesomeness. Not only have they marketed it correctly, with the makers behind The Fitzroy are really working on its social awareness. There is also a comic book, funded from the campaign, with all the adventures on the submarine. The film premiere is heading into our lives faster than a torpedo and we can’t help but brim with anticipation.
