Directed by Matt Dollings & Murray Thoms
This is our first comedy short about a Cookery show set in a Prison.
The idea stemmed from mispronouncing the TV show Prison Break. From there we loved the idea of a cookery show set in a prison hosted by a psychotic inmate who veers from Celebrity Chef to psychotic prisoner and back again.
We also loved taking the Prison film genre and adding our own twist to it, such as a bullied character like the Fridge. The 2 actors we had playing the main parts (Rob Whitelock & Mat Laroche) did a fantastic job and improvised many of the great lines from the film.
The film was shot using 2 Z1 cameras shooting simultaneously, with long takes to keep the flow and allow Chef to really get into character. (Keep an eye out for how many times Rob accidentally hits himself when he hits the dough - he had bruises all over his chest afterwards).
We filmed it on location in East London, and a big thankyou goes out to everyone who helped make this film possible.
Thanks for watching! « less
