'The Hungry Corpse' is the latest film to come out of the Collabor8te film funding scheme, set up by Rankin Film Production in 2011 to support new talent. The film is a result of a fond collaboration between scriptwriter James Pout and Royal College Of Art alumni Gergely Wootsch and produced by the London based Beakus studio.
'The Hungry Corpse' is set in London’s bustling, yet desolate Trafalgar Square and centres around an ancient, rather hungry Corpse and… a Pigeon. Voiced by Bill Nighy and Stephen Mangan the film is a tale of companionship but also, "a textural imprint of a dark, monochrome London from the perspective of a still, solitary protagonist."
Expect to see 'The Hungry Corpse' on the festival circuit throughout the rest of 2013 and judging by the quality of this teaser trailer alone we expect it'll do rather well.
