‘The Flytipper’ is a splat-stick horror comedy short film tapping into the cinematic traditions of Braindead and Evil Dead – with a dose of pure Britishness. The film is currently looking for backers on its indiegogo page, having had a great start since it launched last week. Check it out here, as well as seeing a free taster of the prologue which the team shot for free.
Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Marc Coleman, ‘The Flytipper’ is a riotous and gory tale of three men who, after flytipping illegally, encounter a rabid monster made of rubbish which will stop at nothing to hunt them down.
Filming is set to begin at the end of April, with a release at the end of June 2017.
The film is a throwback to a time when practical, physical effects were the norm, incarnated in the star of the movie, the monster itself (check out the concept art below).
Marc Coleman, the Director, is an award-winning filmmaker and actor with over 10 years in the business. His production company, Dogged Films, has garnered over 3 million hits on YouTube.
