Dear Fitzrovians,

Spring has finally sprung and the flowers are blooming. 

And so it is with The Fitzroy. 

After a long hard winter slogging away through post-production we are finally starting to see the results of our toil. 

The edit of the film is now much tighter; we currently have a running time of 94 minutes and are very close to having it locked. 

The team has been working hard on the special effects and they are starting to come together now. We have a 3d submarine! 

On the music front The Green Rock River Band and Tashkezar (formally The Vamp) have been tinkering away at the score and songs. We had the joy of placing some rehearsal tracks into the film. We couldn’t be more excited by how the music is bringing the film together. 

Once we have the film locked we’ll be going into the studio and do the final recordings. In the meantime we thought you might like a sneak peak. So without further ado here is the track from the ‘spiraling out of control scene’ (please note this is just a rehearsal recording and not the final recording). 

Some of you might be wondering why it is all taking so long!? 

Well the truth is we are stretching every penny we have left as far as possible. This means people working in their spare time and around day jobs. 

On the edit we have been working nights and weekends to try and get the film finished. Obviously this isn’t ideal but hey this is a low budget indie film with big ambitions and we’ll work our butts of to get it to the screen.

To help with the rest of the post-production we are looking to try and raise some additional financing. This will allow us to speed up the process and finish the film to the quality we want. So if you know anybody interested in investing in a film, do point them in our direction.

But fear not we will get this film over the finish line – even if we have to drag it over kicking and screaming!

Hopefully now that we’re close to having a locked cut we should be able to share some more exciting news with you over the coming months. 

All the best and hope you are all well. 



Gas Masks: We now have the gas masks in our possession! Which means we should be able to send them out in May. Keep an eye out on your email as we’ll be requesting your address soon. 

T-shirts: We will be delivering these when we have the film complete. 

Title characters: We have now finished the titles and they look stunning. We’ll be doing an update purely on them in the next few months so stay tuned. We will be delivering the individual character prints when we have the film complete. 

 If you have any questions about any of the rewards please don’t hesitate to email us.

      Unfortunately not through kicksarter... but we are in the progress of updating our website and it will include a shop!

      I'm sure we'll be offering t-shirts through it. Well let you all know when it's up.

      Thanks for the kind offer. At the moment I think we're okay for those two roles but if it changes we'll give you a shout.

      Such dedication. Could we ask for more?

      Need any extra set of hands in post production? I can help with any color correction / grading issue, and some After Effects tasks.
