The Fly is a short film by Olly Williams, the co-director of another famous short film Black Hole. In the Fly a getaway driver waiting outside a bank robbery has three nerve shredding minutes to get through before his crew returns. Can he remain focused? Olly Williams channels Guy Ritchie in this dark comedy of a hopeless getaway driver. Reminiscent of Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, The Fly is bound to make any action loving comedy fan roll on the floor belly laughing and screaming at their screen in frustration in just 6 minutes.
The Director, Olly Williams, set out to make a short film of pure entertainment saying ‘I wanted to make something that grabbed the viewer by the balls and didn’t let go’. This is precisely what he achieved with The Fly. Recently winning the Somerset House Audience Award at Discover.film’s takeover of the East Wing Edit, it had hundreds laughing out loud every day.
