Watch Early Bird Online
Early Bird is a very dark, ‘worst-case scenario’ comedy based around the concept of flat sharing. Everyone that has experienced this type of living arrangement has their own horror-stories and experiences, and our objective was to tap into these to highlight the absurdity of the entire scenario. You move into a house after meeting the current tenants during a twenty-minute interview, and then accept that you will be sharing your life and possessions with these people for an unspecified length of time. It’s based in Tooting, London, which has a high percentage of people living in flat shares. Every scene is shot in either a Tooting-based flat or business, and we did this in order to create a real community feel for the film.
