The story behind the film

‘Fish’ is a surreal romantic comedy inspired by the common experience of an awkward first date. We shot it on location in one day at Pineapple Club bar in Birmingham. We had a small crew and a tiny budget so it was great to premiere at BFI Flare film festival earlier in the year.
