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.



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 Tait DOP


    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"
