We were contacted by James Bushe about his new project entitled Cannibals and Carpet Fitters; you’ll know James from his recent short film Predator: Dark Ages which broke the internet a few months back.
Check out details of the new project from its Kickstarter page below.
James is a multi-award winning filmmaker, who has written, produced and directed a number of short films that have featured in various film festivals including Cannes short film corner, Leeds International Film Festival, Hollyshorts, Shriekfest, Chicago and New York Horror Festivals. He is also one of the founders of Fascination Pictures, an independent film company.
His short film ‘Blackout’, a horror comedy, went on to win Best Horror short film at the Shriekfest film festival in Los Angeles.
James followed this up with Cannibals & Carpet Fitters. Again the short was a massive success and won Best Horror short at the Leeds International Film festival, as voted by the audience. James’ latest project ‘Predator Dark Ages’, a medieval monster movie based on the predator franchise, has so far had over 1.5 million views on YouTube, again with outstanding reviews. It has been hailed as one of the best fan films ever made.
About: Cannibals & Carpet Fitters is a action packed horror/comedy feature film based on our award winning short film of the same name that we made a couple of years ago. Our plan was always to make the feature film, with the script being written at the same time as the short. This was our way of giving people a little taste of what we want to bring to the feature film. Of course we was only able to hint at a lot of the things we have planned due to it’s tight budget and time. So for the feature you can expect more cannibals, more carpet fitters, more laughs and of course more gore! Below is the short film for you to check out if you’ve got a bit of spare time (19 minutes to be exact – perfect lunchtime entertainment).
Having created the short film of cannibals & carpet fitters and then seeing the very positive reaction to it, we know without the limitations we had, just how much better we can make this feature. We’ve got a cracking script! Some amazing actors attached. We’re bringing back most of our crew from the short film too, who know how to do things well, but in budget, and joining them will be some other crew members from James’ Predator Dark Ages short film with a wealth of experience.
Head on over to the Kickstarter page for more details and rewards.
