Ptasznik Productions releases short horror-comedy film entitled “Follow the Recipe.” Written by Jon Savitt (Funny or Die, College Humor, Vulture, Good Mythical Morning) and produced by Kaden Ptasznik, the short film — coming in at just under 11 minutes — is a dark tale about details, dessert, and the dangers of going off script. Based on the writer’s own experiences learning how to cook, the offbeat film plays on the fear of what can happen when you ignore or misinterpret directions.
“I really just wanted to write something fun,” Savitt said. “I like using shorts as a way to experiment and take risks, and I thought bringing a cake to life — and giving it a personality — was a funny image. The team at Ptasznik Productions immediately got my humor and did a great job with the campy, playful tone. None of my personal kitchen incidents have been quite this bad, but they’ve been close.”
