Coat Check Boy is a zero-budget fashion film which was produced by a group of 6 students. Next to being the director, I wrote the script, edited the footage and animated the opening and closing sequence.
Inspired our society’s obsession with bad guys, Charlie Magpie is a story of an anti-hero’ journey from shame to fame. Charlie wants to be part of the inner circle of extravagant clubkids, but he’s stuck behind the coat check desk. Thrill-seeking Charlie starts stealing the glamorous things left behind at the coat check until he’s found out and locked-up. Lucky for Charlie, his mugshot turns him famous and he becomes invincible to any door policy or bouncer. The only person he should look out for is the new cloakroom boy.
