Kia ora, I'm Ruby Harris writer, director and
producer of Triple Scoop. I'm so excited to be
making Triple Scoop, a Dunedin-made short film which follows two
best friends making easy money after school.
Triple Scoop is based on my own childhood memory of
me and my best friend bored after school, stealing neighbours
flowers and selling them back to them, saying we were fundraising
for a pony. We would then run down to the dairy and spend the money
we fundraised on ice creams.
Triple Scoop is a cheeky and lighthearted portrait of two smart
nine year old best friends.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
We would love to invite you to be part of making Triple Scoop.
We're making this film with an amazing team who have been working
so hard for such a long time and now you can also join this
exciting project by donating and
sharing our page.
We have a strong talented and mostly female cast and crew from
Dunedin to make the film. We are working with creatives, actors,
workers and professionals to encourage more film projects in
Dunedin and encourage more women in film.
I am the writer, director and producer of Triple Scoop. This is
my fifth short film with my past three winning awards at the
Outlook For Someday film competition and one premiering at the
Berlin Feminist Film Week 2019.
Some of the crew we are lucky to work with are DOP Laura Tait,
production manager & 1st AD Lisa Hastie, acting coach Victoria
Abbott, art director Justine Tindley, editor Lyra Stewart and
colorist Alana Cotton.
We have received incredible support from Images & Sound,
NHNZ, Queenstown Camera Company and Mykala Tuxford Photography.
From all of us on the Triple Scoop team thank you so much for
being part of making this film.

Laura has spent the past 4 years working in the film industry as
part of the camera department. Stepping up to the role of DOP for
this film is very special and she is looking forward to working
with a predominantly female crew.
Coming from working on larger scale productions such as power
rangers and the brokenwood mysteries it is refreshing to be working
on a smaller more intimate project
"I have always been impressed by the way cinema can tell a story
and make you feel something. I have a strong passion for beautiful
images what mainly drives my passion is when you're watching a
movie and the framing and composition of a shot makes you stop and
appreciate the art of what the cinematographer has done, which is
something I'd love to achieve"
