else:
# set filename as random string

Not sure what you mean by "work of", but Python is a dynamically typed
language so you can really pass whatever type you want to the function.

This line:

> ext = filename.split('.')[-1]

looks like the filename parameter is most likely expected to be a string
and this line:

> if instance.pk:

indicates that instance is something that is expected to have a pk
member in some (most?) cases.

What exactly is this function and where did you get it from?

I'm assuming you didn't write it yourself.

A bit more context would make it a lot easier for someone to help you.

Kind regards,
