We’re going to make a short film in 48 hours using ideas provided by YOU!

We’ve been lucky enough to speak to some awesome filmmakers & actors throughout the course of this campaign, so we thought we’d do something special just for you!

Next weekend (8/9th Dec) we will produce a short film based around the world ofThe Fitzroy feature film, we’ll have 48 hrs only to shoot and edit the final piece. The short will not appear in the finished feature film, however some of the characters may do and it could be based around a sub plot behind the scenes or even a mini prequel. The finished short will be part of the special edition DVD and will be premiered online on the 10th December.

We want YOU to help us make this film! Helping us create the story and make the film in 48hrs by being part of the cast and crew.

We’ll be setting tasks everyday throughout the week so keep and eye out. The first task is one all of you can engage with. We’ve come up with three scenarios and have selected our favourites from the ones you’ve sent us. Vote for your favioute on our Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/events/298842210235532/

The winning idea will go into production at the weekend.
