Experiencing Interruptions?

Fizzy Boys

49 cc, clouds of blue smoke, over 50 mph on a long downhill with a following wind (if you haven't had too many chips the night before).

Fizzy Boys is the first documentary by sound recordist and experimental noise artist Chris Bullock. It explores friendship in middle-age, and the pursuit of enduring fun and companionship through tribes from people's teenage years.

Director Statement

Having worked as a sound recordist for several years, I realised what really appealed to me was helping people tell their stories. The most interesting people have the biggest passion for their 'thing', no matter how niche. Communities form, bond and sometimes fall apart over the smallest details.

This is my first documentary, exploring a subset of the Sports Moped phenomenon from the 1970s and 80s. If it's a success, I'd love to bring attention to other passionate characters in our communities.

Fizzy Boys was made with no budget other than picking up a cheap and slightly faulty HD-DV camera off eBay and finding a bit of cash for festival entries. This spirit of zero budget, independent story telling is something I'd very much like to continue.
