So I'm quite excited to get one of my own ideas off the ground, Cannibals and Carpet Fitters, the title says it all! I had the original idea a few years ago but didn't start putting it all together until late last year. I think the idea came from my love for british horror comedies, films like Shaun of the Dead, Dog Soldiers, Severance and the fact that I use to work for a carpet fitting firm when I was 17 was a big influence. I originally wrote the film as a full length feature script however to see if the concept works and to get some interest we want to create a short film version first, just to give audience's a taste of what a full length feature could be like. Lot's of gore, great characters and hopefully great entertainment.
I've been lucky enough to team up with Fascination Pictures guys I've known for a couple of years now. I was a big fan of their short film Blackout which won best short horror film at Shriekfest in LA and along with some private investors to help me fund the film we hope we can produce something of cinematic quality. I've also brought in an excellent cast and crew, all of which I've had the pleasure of working with over the past few years on various films. It's my first time producing, writing and acting in a project so I'm already learning a lot as we go but I'm extremely excited and can't wait to show the finished results. Filming begins at the beginning of August.
