Fantastic idea. Reckon you could introduce a few more surprise elements once the idea is established or throw in a twist at the end.

Thanks. That would have been a great idea. It was kind of a make a film as a lark, this one. Turned out cute, but the idea could definitely have done with more time in the kitchen to turn it from a little 2min film into something a bit more substantive and clever. But I like the humanity of it, even though it’s really short.
