Sheep Cake

: Narrative Short
GENRE: Comedy
STATUS: Pre-Production


A pun-loving sheep overcomes a broken heart by discovering a passion for baking cakes.


In this musical comedy a-pun loving sheep has his heart broken by his girlfriend on a big date right before he is able to confess his love. The only thing that pulls him out of his Netflix binging blanket cocoon is a sudden inspiration to start baking cakes.


Imagine the love of your life leaves you. How did you mend your broken heart? Was it a person or a passion? Sheep Show is the feel good musical comedy that will show people happiness can be found in the least expected places. In this highly heated political time we are living in, audiences are becoming fatigued by all of the hate fueled content. We are seeing a push towards relatable content that fills audiences with happiness and optimism. Sheep Cake will be the heart warming and inspirational film audiences are craving to satisfy their sweet tooth. Our film will show the better side of humanity.
