Shot during isolation in Co. Monaghan, Ireland “Devolved” is the collaborative creative effort of writer/producer/star Adam Brennan and director/producer/editor Colin Fleming and Adam’s 16 year old son Jack on camera and assisting in many other departments. Made during the Covid-19 lock down and directed via Zoom and Whatsapp.

We wanted to show the world that even with a mountain of restrictions in front of us there are always ways to create and collaborate to produce high quality material. It is only through an open collaborative process where the true magic comes alive. And that is what happened. Once we started this adventure it took on a life of it’s own and became a film that we believe speaks to everyone and is about everyone.

Devolved is a co-production of FKU Productions & City Morgue Films.

We hope you all enjoy

‘Devolved’ introduces us to Adam, a fastidious and work-proud customer care representative for a healthcare company. Adam is a man who defines himself by his work, and the difference he makes in his customers’ lives, to the point where his entire routine revolves around how best to help them when they need. So what happens when a pandemic rolls around and strips him of his sole raison d’etre?
