Ba-da, ba-da, ba-da, ba-da, ba-da-ba. Ba-da, ba-da, ba-daaaaaaaa BA! Yep, you guessed it, that's the old Pearl and Dean riff blasting out from Fat Heads HQ. It's to announce our recent trip down the glamourous red carpet to celebrate the premiere for the world's first international high school feature film, 'Louie'.
Fat Heads were invited to the prestigious event in March 2009 at the Print Works, Manchester thanks to their role in promoting the film. Red Rose Media, who have produced the movie on behalf of Penketh High School, Warrington, were looking for a web and graphic design company based in the North West to provide promotional posters and literature, an interactive website and various pieces of artwork to be used in the actual feature film.
In true movie-making tradition Fat Heads have been busy beavering away but have kept everything under wraps in preparation for the school's big promotional launch in February. The project has been a different but highly enjoyable experience for Fat Heads and the gratitude shown by the school to invite us to the special event was overwhelming.
Dick (of Dick and Dom fame), who also attended the premiere as a V.I.P guest, describes the movie as "The funniest film I have seen in ages" (he definitely said it, I was next to him at the urinals). If that's not an incentive to watch it then we can always send Barry Norman round your house to bash seven shades out of you with a clapper-board.
