WIZARD’S WAY – COMING YOUR WAY
A film about life, Dragon slaying and bread ratios. Welcome to Bedsit Noir…
Winner of the “Best Comedy Feature” at the 2012 London Independent Film Festival and recently-announced winner of the “Discovery Award” at the LOCO London Comedy Film Festival, WIZARD’S WAY is a hilarious tale of friendship, betrayal, MMORPGs and a revolutionary burger.
Two young film graduates are recording a documentary about Julian ‘Windows’ Andrews, the world’s most revered player of a rather old online fantasy role-playing game called Wizard’s Way. The game is not so much a way of life for Windows, and his loyal bathroom-dwelling sidekick, Barry Tubbulb – it IS life. But when the game is unexpectedly shut down everyone’s life has to change…
WIZARD’S WAY will screen on Friday 25th January at the BFI Southbank as winner of the LOCO LONDON Discovery Award 2013. It will then be released theatrically and online in Spring 2013. There is a playable video game and a ‘save wizard’s way’ online campaign with interactive website which will be launched in conjunction with the film.
Filmed on a budget of £400 on a secondhand video camera and a boom pole made from an Argos lamp , WIZARD’S WAY, is the debut feature of Metal Man – a collective of three published authors, Socrates Adams-Florou (writer of the novel 'Everything’s Fine'), Chris Killen (the novel 'The Bird Room' ) and Joe Stretch (author of 'Friction', 'Wildlife' and 'The Adult'). Shot in their home city of Manchester the three not only wrote and directed, but also starred in the film – Chris & Joe as the budding filmmakers, Socrates as Barry. They then persuaded their friend Kristian Scott to play ‘Windows’ and for reasons still unclear to the filmmakers Sadie Frost makes an unexpected, but excellent cameo appearance. It is produced by Lloyd Stanton, who in turn persuaded Oscar-winning editor Chris Dickens (Slumdog Millionaire), to finish the editing as a favour. Music Industry legends Jazz Summers & Tim Parry are overseeing the rollout via their Big Life Pictures company.
METAL MAN declared: “We hope Wizard’s Way demonstrates that if you have a good idea, some likeable characters and a lot of spare time at the weekends, you can make a feature film without any external support or funding. This isn’t about taking on Hollywood or Soho, this is about genuine indigenous British filmmaking – without the bodices and/or royalty!”
