PINEAPPLE - Short Film

Pineapple follows the story of Peter, an adolescent on the quest to be cool.


I sent the brief to the writer, to make a film in the style of Richard Ayoade. I decided I wanted a story about a nerdy teen trying to be a ‘cool kid’ and left the writer with that to take their own creative lead on the project.


I met with the actor a few days before the shoot to brief him, we then went through motives and what mindset the character is in. We then filmed using Ravensbourne UK facilities in order to keep the budget down.


I sat with the editor throughout the editing process as I wanted the film to be on track with the style in mind and it needed careful thought over the pacing.
