[Crowd Funding] Would You Like To Board The Fitzroy?

Crowd-funding. There are too many projects these days both local ones and from abroad that are screaming for attention, and for your kind dollars, to help the respective filmmakers bring their dream project to life. And I suppose I'll have some bandwidth to put up what catches my fancy from time to time.

Introducing, The Fitzroy, written and directed by Andrew Harmer, and produced by Liam Garvo & James Heath

The Fitzroy, is black-comedy live action feature film set in a post-apocalyptic 1950’s, on board The Fitzroy hotel, a leaky submarine beached just off Margate - the last refuge for a traditional summer holiday.

Written and Directed by Andrew Harmer and Produced by Liam Garvo & James Heath, the team behind Dresden Pictures.

Set in an alternative post-apocalyptic 1950’s, The Fitzroy hotel, a derelict submarine beached just off Margate, is the last place for a traditional summer holiday.

Bernard, the hotel’s bellboy, cook, maintenance man and general dogsbody faces a constant battle to keep the decaying hotel airtight and afloat.

But when he falls in love with Sonya, a murderous guest, he is thrown into a world of lies, backstabbing and chaos. As Bernard struggles to hide her murders from the other guests and suspicious authorities, the hotel literally begins to sink around him.

As his world implodes, Bernard must choose between the woman he thinks he loves and the hotel submarine that is keeping them all alive.
As at the time of writing, The Fitzroy will need at least £60,000 pledged on Kickstarter by Sunday 23 December, and it's now at £13,463 with 26 days to go.
And there are some neat giveaways the filmmakers have packaged together for their funding project, which I thought is a rare, extremely nice and cute touch. The film titles will be in an animated format used to explain how the world of The Fitzroy came to be. This will be populated by a cast of characters in which you can be one of them, by simply sending the filmmakers photos of yourself (or a loved one), and they'll turn you into a toon to be featured in the title sequence, PLUS a one-off illustrated print for you to frame and hang! That's not all, and you can find out more at Kickstarter.

While you're contemplating this opportunity, judge for yourselves how serious the Producers are in their Vlog here:

and why not subscribe to the YouTube Channel while you're at it as well?
