Open House 1-4

In America, Open Houses are a cultural milestone. Every Sunday, realtors fan out across the country planting Open House signs, inviting prospective buyers into private residences. But when a snooty Realtor suspects a Latino couple is there to rob her and informs her other guests, all hell breaks loose.

Director Biography - Brad Holloway

I've been a working screenwriter for the past twelve years, having written scripts for Warner Bros, Paramount, Lionsgate, James Mangold, Michael De Luca, etc. This is my first directing effort and thus far, the feedback has been amazing. I can't wait to screen the short for audiences at festivals all over the world!

Director Statement

The threat of being robbed at an open house and the assumptions realtors make about potential customers (often negative) are two hot button issues that are ripe for comedy. First and foremost, my intention for the film is to be a crowd pleaser, darkly humorous, thrilling, a whodunnit of sorts with an unexpected, satisfying climax. But I also think the film works on a much deeper level thematically regarding issues such as economic inequality and shifting demographics in America. The age-old adage 'don't judge a book by its cover' also comes to mind.

Personally, my background is in screenwriting. I'll spend months working on a new draft and it's only after I'm finished that I get feedback. The enticing thing about directing is that you have a whole cast and crew of talented people to collaborate with in real time. The energy on set was fantastic and everyone contributed to make the film better- it was a genuine team effort.
