Directed by Andrew Harmer.

Starring Cerith Flinn, Jan Anderson, Kenneth Collard, David Schaal, David Gant, Stuart McGugan, John Wark, James Hamer-Morton, Sarah Griffin, Norma Cohen, Ant Payne, and Anne-Sophie Marie.

Synopsis:

In a post-apocalyptic 1950’s, a bellboy struggles to keep a converted submarine fit for use as a hotel whilst trying to cater to the whims of a tyrannical boss, a femme fatale and various other bizarre guests.

The Fitzroy is a very quirky comedy, featuring a setting and style that harkens back to the Ealing comedies of old. Set in the 1950’s, this hotel is actually a disused Soviet submarine that has somehow ended up at Margate. It is here that we meet the protagonist Bernard (Flinn), a bellboy who spends his days trying to maintain the hotel, avoid his bully of a boss (Schall) and summon up the courage to speak to one of the guests,

Submarine Hotel + Alternate Pa 1950's + Comedy + Murder = The Fitzroy

We bring you news of one of my most hotly anticipated projects: The Fitzroy. It's set on a submarine in an alternative, post apocalyptic 1950's and centers around a man trying to keep the submersible livable while hiding the murders committed by the woman he loves. Producer Liam Garvo says its a cross between Delicatessen and Fawlty Towers. While I've never seen Fawlty Towers, I am salivating at the thought of dry British humor confined to a leaky submarine - all in a monochrome palette. The Fitzroy is still in the developmental stages but will start it's crowdfunding in about 7 weeks. If you want to see what Garvo is capable of, just watch his incredible scifi short Breathe which played at the Sci-Fi London Film Festival (among others) in 2010. The film will be written and directed by Andrew Harmer with James Heath and Garvo producing. [Continued ...]
