The low lit, brooding atmosphere of the The Bicycle Thief Pizzeria presented the perfect plot for a short film.
Our online film 'Once a Thief, Always a Thief', needed to be equally as desperate and sombre as the classic 1948 Italian film 'Ladri di biciclette', the restaurant was named after.
Working with a small dedicated team, I story-boarded, produced, co-wrote and directed a short feature that took the viewer through a four part story that also presented basic information about the restaurant.
Always pushing for new ways to deliver the unique back-story of the bicycle thief, a series of coffee cards were produced challenging patrons to guess the names of various celebrities who had fallen from grace.
