About the film

No Appointment Necessary is not just a comedy about a guy opening up a backyard therapy clinic, it’s a genuinely funny and touching film with themes of mental health awareness, developing meaningful relationships and acknowledging our true identity.

Being grounded in such topical subject matter, audiences of varying ages, genders and sexual orientations have connected with the material in a substantial way whilst enjoying the entertaining banter and adventures of the lead and supporting characters.

Originally titled Dick’s Clinic, the production was made completely independently, garnering public support via a Pozible crowdfunding campaign to complete post-production. With test-screenings and reviews creating exceptional support, the filmmakers and Bird On A Broomstick Entertainment were set to release the film to the public. However, due to unfortunate circumstances beyond the filmmakers control, a reshoot of an entire character was imperative for the films release. After, once again, raising the funds, casting, shooting and cutting, Dick’s Clinic evolved into No Appointment Necessary and is ready for the public. The reshoot, thankfully, only enhanced what was already captured.

Keeping with the independent nature of the production, we are experimenting with a new distribution model for the exclusive online release of the film; one that offers a big ‘thank you’ to those supporting Independent films and filmmakers by rewarding anybody who recommends the film. The concept is easy; you rent the film at full price, which unlocks a unique coupon code. You then share your code via social media, email, word of mouth, whatever means you wish; and when someone uses your code, you get 50% of what they pay. It’s a win-win. Customers using your code gets 50% off, and you get 50% of what they pay* (*minus PayPal transaction fees) as a reward for your promotion of the film. 

But first and foremost we hope you enjoy No Appointment Necessary.
