‘The Flytipper’ is a riotous and gory tale of three men who, after illegally fly-tipping, encounter a rabid monster made of rubbish who will stop at nothing to hunt them down and take their lives in the most absurd ways possible.
Comedy and Horror have had a long standing relationship. This marriage allows for gore and violence to flourish. Social commentary is also present without it being too serious. Filmmakers that venture this route have flexible room to convey their vision.
London-based filmmaker Marc Coleman will pay homage to the gory films of yesteryear. Coleman aims to dump Comedy, Horror into a creature feature. His upcoming project is; The FlyTipper. This, of course, is a pun. For those unaware of the term FlyTipping its the illegal disposal of waste.
Coleman launched a crowdfunding campaign to aid in the creation to his short film. The production team is asking for £4,500 ($5611.50). Funding will go towards every aspect of The FlyTipper film. This is in contrast to most campaigns targeting specific areas of production.
