BEEP - Short Film

Beep follows the story of a young man named Bailey who struggles with an avocado and a self-checkout machine.


The idea for the film came from a real life experience where I was stuck at a self-checkout machine with an avocado and I wanted to experiment with observational comedy. It was inspired by Peep Show, The Double, Submarine. 


After struggling to get a supermarket we decided the best way forward would be to build a set. I changed the lookbook and decided that a grungy/run-down supermarket would be a better visual reference than a clean new-looking supermarket.


The rushes were backed up and then sent the the composer, offline-editor and the grader. I sat with the offline-editor on a few occasions brainstorming ideas and giving feedback. This is where the film came together as a whole.
