WELCOME TO SMILEY'S DINER

THE HAPPIEST DINER IN THE WORLD!!!

What's Cooking in the kitchen  is a short abstract thriller student film addressing the trials and tribulations of a part-time employee.

About us!

A young woman, who has been struggling to find a job for months, sees a help wanted sign at a dilapidated restaurant. She decides to give it a try, hoping to earn some money and improve her situation. However, as soon as she enters the restaurant, she realizes that something is very wrong. She is greeted by a TV that plays a series of bizarre and unsettling tapes, each presented by a different masked manager who represents a stereotypical manager personality: Wrath, Greed, and Apathy. The woman is told that she must wear a giant mask that covers her entire face, which is supposed to make her look less tired and more happy. Between each tape, the woman hears horrifying noises coming from the kitchen, each time becoming louder and louder. After the tapes finish, she's instructed to go to the backroom to get her own mask and sees the faces of the employees, who are injured and deformed. The woman thinks about leaving but realizes that due to the job market, she has no other choice, and reluctantly puts on the mask.

Working on Miss Cooking in the Kitchen was very stressful but in the best way possible! The many hours spent in my basement building the masks, costumes, and props was a tiring process but I believe I successfully brought my vision to life... ALTHOUGH, I simply cannot take all the credit!!!!!! I'm so happy I got to work with such a TALENTED cast and crew who understand the importance of the story and utilize their skills to the best of their abilities making the film as awesome as possible!

I'm a sad girl. and this is a sad world... you must believe in yourself because at the end of the day all you have is "ouuuuu its just me myself and I"... comment down below if you know that song... yeah I'm a little weird.

ANDREW ARTHURS

PRODUCER/ STORY EDITOR

I'm a producer of weird. I work in live action and animated features and television of all genres, in all stages of production. I'm also quite proficient at writing strange and unique stories. All in all, I'm an advocate of art. I've been on a dystopian kick for a while, so this film was way up my alley. Delving deeper into the project, I found a solid crew with outstanding passion and talent. I felt like I was surprised every meeting with how much effort and time the crew put into this project. I believe it all paid off. 

NOW LETS LOOK AT THE EMPLOYEES...

What is the point of the Smiley masks?

Well the answer is simple! We strive to keep all our employees 100% happy, and to make sure they are ALWAYS serving our customers with a big ol' smile! We do not know of any customers who want to see employee injuries, so why not cover it up with a mask? POOF its almost as though the injuries aren't  even there!  

Let's compare the two....

Without the masks..... BOOOOO


EW! YUCK!

Woah... that was gross. Let's put a mask on them
