Writer/Producer/Director at Nerds in love - short film from 2013 to 2013
Short film project 12 mins - shot in 4k using the Red Scarlett camera with a crew of 18. The project is due to air on Comedy Central NZ in early 2014. Starring Lawrence Leung, Tessa De Josselin and Stan Walker. SYNOPSIS: Every day is the same for Emilio, a cleaner in a suburban shopping centre. He and his mate Fergus empty bins, bus tables and mop floors but this isn’t the life Emilio envisioned for himself. One day he spots the girl of his dreams, Jess, a checkout girl at a local discount supermarket. She’s cute, she’s funny and she could be Emilio’s glimmer of hope. In a chance encounter, they meet in the food court where Emilio paints himself as a retail superhero in a bid to impress Jess. That is until Fergus convinces Emilio to finally make his move but things don’t quite go to plan. Now it’s time for Emilio to make or break - clear the tables, get the girl and save the world. This is the quirky origin story of boy meets girl, and the stupid things we do for love.
