About the Production:
 
"The Fitzroy is the kind of film I loved growing up, in many ways it is quite old fashioned film and harks back to some of the British Ealing comedies. It’s a film I would like to see as an audience member and I figured I should just make a film I want to see and hopefully others will enjoy it as well. Also it’s a chance to combine a lot of my favourite genres, comedy, sci-fi, period and a dash of noir." - Andrew Harmer
