When You‘re Here, You’re Pizza!

Directed by Tim Schwagel
Narrative Short
United States | 7 min | 2023

River orders the same pizza every day. What could possibly go wrong?

“Wisconsin 48 Hour Film Project short film to screen at Cannes”, Madison NBC 15


“When You’re Here, You’re Pizza” came from the desire to make something. We had a weekend on the calendar 3 months out to make a short film, but we had no idea what it was going to be. Luckily, I had an idea in the middle of the night and cracked out the first draft of this in one sitting! As anyone in a creative field can tell you, there’s nothing like last minute panic to really kick things into high gear.

This short is our silly take on the noir genre with a healthy serving of pizza on top. I hope you have as much fun watching it as we had making it!
