IT'S A TREAT - Still 1

Tell us a bit about your film. What’s it about? And what inspired you to create it?


The idea for the film came out of a silly conversation I had with my ex-girlfriend.

Seven minutes or less is a pretty tight limit. What are some of the challenges in creating a short erotic film?

When writing a comedy I always find it a challenge to keep the film moving along as quickly as possible and not to have any dull moments.

What do you hope audiences will get from your work?

A good laugh

IT'S A TREAT - Still 2

Who are your performers, and how did you meet them/invite them to participate?

Both actors in the film are good friends who both have successful acting careers back in Australia

Were there any funny or unexpected moments while filming?

Not while filming but I had to fire the original male actor which was one of the hardest things I had to do.

What projects are you working on now/next, and where can we find you?

You can find all of my other work by typing in my name Luke Mayze into Google and looking up my other short films in Vimeo. Currently I’m working on getting my first feature film up.
