Award-winnning filmmaker Julian Grant IN PRODUCTION on latest indy musical film-noir feature.

Now shooting in Chicago, indy filmmaker Julian Grant is halfway through his latest no-budget feature production, “F*CKLOAD OF SCOTCH TAPE”. Based on the crime noir stories of writer Jedidiah Ayres, FLOST tells the story of heat seeking missile Benji and his attempt at redemption after participating in a kidnapping caper.

Says Grant, “Jed’s work is great. Really visceral – and I wanted to make a film noir film for a long time – so this was the result.”

Inspired by the works of Dennis Potter ({Pennie From Heaven”, “The Singing Detective”), Grant transposed the material with musical collaborator Kevin Quain and added a ‘sing-a-long’ aspect to the drama.

“It’s basically “Fight Club” meets “My Fair Lady”, says Grant. “Dennis Potter’s work is so rich – and so clever – it was a real turning point for me to add Kevin and Jed’s work together.

Scheduled to wrap December 23rd, FLOST will be hitting the festival circuit next year and released via VOD and direct download to Cinema 2.0 enthusiasts.

“I’m all for direct download nowadays and this film has been designed for that very market. Today’s cinema enthusiasts are online, active and dedicated to having what they want immediately. Low cost aggregators and online services are now breaking through and this picture is designed for immediate access once it’s completed.”
