Essentially known for his role as Moss from the I.T Crowd and having appeared in The Mighty Boosh as Saboo, Ayoade is arguably one of the reknown British comedians at present. However, as is less known, Ayoade is also incredibly talented behind the cameras…
Directing videos for Arctic Monkeys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vampire Weekend amongst other successful artists as well as having won ‘Best DVD’ at the NME Awards for directing the Arctic Monkeys DVD ‘At The Apollo’ in 2008, this March we can expect Ayoade’s directorial debut in the film world, with the comedy-drama ‘Submarine’.
The indie film is an adaptation on Joe Dunthorne’s book ‘Submarine’ and stars Sally Hawkins and Paddy Considine (and excecutive produced by Ben Stiller ahh!). The plot entails the coming of age story regarding the first relationship of an eccentric 15 year old boy, who is additionally trying to prevent the break up of his parents marriage. Shot with a nostalgic view of the world, beautiful cinematic skill and a good dose of comedy this film is sure to be hit.
Submarine hits the cinemas March 18th, but in the mean time see the trailer here
(Moreover, the soundtrack holds pieces from composer Andrew Hewitt and the one and only Alex Turner- we sure are in for a treat!)
