British Comedy ‘Borrowed Time’ Turns to Kickstarter

Borrowed Time Film on KickstarterThe theatrical rollout for Jules Bishop‘s quirky comedy Borrowed Time, starring Phil Davis and Theo Barklem-Biggs, will be bankrolled by cash raised from crowdfunding service Kickstarter.

Berlin 2013: Metrodome Picks Up U.K. Rights To Tim Roth Starrer ‘The Liability’Produced by Olivier Kaempfer of Parkville Pictures, the moviemakers used the upstart alternative financing website to raise $30,000 to help bankroll its rollout after it landed in the U.K. from the U.S.

Selected for best of the fest at the Edinburgh International Film Festival last year, the movie is billed as a quirky, cross-generational comedy that tells the odd-couple story of a grumpy old man and teenage would-be burglar.

It is one of the first British movies to turn to the crowd funder to raise distribution cash.

The project is the seventh feature to emerge from Film London’s Microwave project, set up to bankroll micro-budget British features.
