Ever Thought of Sound of Music set in Stonehenge rather than Salzburg? Rooftop Film Club Unveil Classic Movie Posters
Kings of outdoor cinema, Rooftop Film Club, unveil classic movie posters with their “European” references removed and replaced with UK equivalents.
The striking images have been created to reflect the uncertainty that Brexit is bringing to the British economy, including that of the film and entertainment industries. According to recent studies, production spend in the UK movie industry is at £8bn a year* - a figure that is sure to dip if the Government doesn't restore confidence amongst foreign investment into the UK film movie industry.
Rooftop Film Club Founder Gerry Cottle Jnr., says “Brexit uncertainty is putting the UK creative industries, including film & entertainment, at risk. The UK film industry has been growing year on year, with many foreign box office hits being filmed here. But Brexit could increase the cost of filming here, as well as putting British film exports to Europe and further afield, under greater regulation. Imagine a world where Europe didn't exist in film - it would be like a horror movie. So many wonderful films have been set in beautiful locations such as Rome, Salzburg and Bruges. With these posters, we're sending a message to the Government to avoid the future no one wants to see ....The Sound of Music with a rainy Stonehenge backdrop, we say “no thanks”!
