"Produced on a budget that makes shoestrings seem expensive, Spinal Tap meets Rocky in cutting edge comedy mockumentary Bloody Lip."
Working class inner-city middling professional heavyweight boxer Patrick StGeorge Junior has just seven days to prepare for the fight of his life against childhood rival Liam O'Saink - a bout which, if triumphant, will result in Junior achieving his life's goal; bettering the win/loss record laid down by his domineering father Patrick StGeorge Senior during his own short-lived boxing career.
But with a fractious on-again-off-again relationship with his middle class girlfriend Bekka Green and a whole heap of pressure from Liam's menacing promoter Teddy Toddsworth thrown into the mix, what kind of a mental and physical state will Patrick Junior be in come fight night?
Win or lose, one thing's for sure; by the end of the week, Patrick StGeorge's life will never be the same again...
Set to a "thumping soundtrack" composed by local artists, bands and erstwhile DJ/music producer Adriel Leff himself, Bloody Lip is marketed as "aiming broadly at Generations Y and Z, and adventurously merging the ever-popular documentary format with familiar contemporary genres such as cinéma vérité, television sitcom, music video and improvised viral comedy."
