Meat Lovers

To satisfy her appetite, a young woman must juggle dealing with her salacious lover and a mysterious pizza order.

Directors Vision

I’ve always loved pizza and monster movies. With this short film, I wanted to take an everyday situation and twist it into something spooky and cinematic with a movie monster. I also wanted to accomplish the multiple gags and monster effects with a blend of practical and digital effects.

Another goal of the film was to play with the theme of consumption. Too often we do not think about the origins of what we consume. When we look at a pepperoni on a pizza we see a pepperoni. We don’t give it a second thought, it’s tasty and great on a slice. We don’t think about the lives given in order to create that greasy and delicious meat disk.
