Pizza Deliverance

Model Pizza Palace employee Mike lives by the motto “when you’re loyal to your job, you’re loyal to your customers and your customers are loyal to you”. A regular delivery at the home of his favourite customer, Naomi Nakatomi, goes awry when he discovers something unsettling. Stuck with new trainee, Shenae; a no nonsense woman who’s had plenty of jobs, but never a career, the pair must put aside their differences to ensure '100% Customer Satisfaction', no matter the cost.

Director Statement

Pizza Deliverance is me shoving everything I love into one film. I've worked as a pizza delivery driver for 5 years now, and I've met many interesting characters both in the store and on the road. Both of the main characters are different archetypes I've worked with and that never got along, so I thought, "what if they were in a buddy cop movie?"
I wear my inspirations on my sleeve; Shane Black and John McTiernan films were always on in the background when working on this film, and it shows. Like Die Hard or Lethal Weapon, I want people to walk away from this film simultaneously gasping for breath, but wanting more.
