Burger Royale was inspired by the low budget horror movies of the 1970s and1980s such as "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Halloween" and "The Evil Dead".
After pitching the project at Escape Studios in the Spring of 2021, Writer-Director Gary Roche worked with a number of animation students to complete the film; all of them worked in their own time after the formal end of studies in the 2021 Summer Term to get the project completed.
Burger Royale is a proof-of-concept for an independent animated feature; finance and distribution
options are currently being explored to take the project forwards to commercial markets.
