Written and directed by Andrew Harmer
Produced by Liam Garvo and James Heath
If you read my article last month, you'll know that The Fitzroy is a comedy that will be entirely funded by contributions from fans. For full details, please see my original post.
If you don't have time to read the full article, I'll summarize. The film will be a comedy in the style of Monty Python and Jean-Pierre Jeunet and it will be set in a post-apocalyptic version of the 1950’s.
The filmmaking team have set up a fundraiser which you can access here on Kickstarter. The team needs to raise £60,000 by December 23rd and the current total is £20,572 after three weeks. As you can see, that leaves almost £40,000 to raise in the next three weeks. It's Christmas, so maybe you are feeling generous?
However, if you want to help and just can't afford to donate, please consider promoting the film by writing an article or simply retweeting any of the posts promoting the film.
This is our chance to make a small difference and encourage an original idea to develop into an actual film.
Anyone who makes a significant effort may be rewarded with some merchandise. The details are in the post I linked to above.
I'll close by adding a couple of videos:
This first one is a quick message from producers Liam Garvo and James Heath:
