The Angry Penguin

So how did the idea for a short horror comedy film about an evil penguin come to fruition? Throw together a group of wanna-be film makers in an intense one week course, teach them the basics, get them to pitch their ideas to each other, vote for the best one and then let them loose in Melbourne. The idea chosen revolves around a human couple that adopt a penguin instead of the child they could never have, but something is not quite right about this penguin. Is he really evil?
