Short Film Production

Less is the new more, creating short films that drive just as much of a story as a feature-length film.

With a passion to create unique and cinematic short films in Sheffield and across the UK, whether it be a heart-wrenching drama or a blood-pumping action thriller, we work to execute our visions to the very last detail!

Film Production With A Difference

Short films are much like a feature-length film but with a major difference. The run times cannot exceed 40 minutes (including credits), your content has to resonate with your audience and tell a story in a much shorter space of time
 

However, that doesn’t mean that short films are less than. Short film productions still require the same creativity, production, and dedication as a standard film, if not more so with being able to convey the same emotions and story arch in a shorter space of time.

Spirit Of Independence Festival

Since the beginning of Open House Pictures, our ethos has always been to promote and support the filmmaking industry at every possible opportunity. 

We are proudly partnering with the Spirit Of Independence Festival. Having attended the festival in 2019, we were drawn to its strong aesthetic and purposeful potential to highlight impactful micro-budget short films.

CURRENT SHORT FILM PRODUCTIONS

We believe everyone has a story to tell, everyday people go through experiences who shape them to be who they are today. There’s something beautiful about telling a story through the eyes of a camera, and through planning, filming, editing, and producing a short film we are able to bring those ideas to life.

 

We are tremendously passionate about producing short films, and it is something that we are able to carry out in our spare time. If you’re interested in our other video services we provide please have a look through our short films to see the creativity and technical skill we put into each and every one of our videos.

Crew

Hiring crew for your film is vital as everybody has to work together to ensure the final outcome is as the director and produces envisioned. That's why working with a talented and hard-working crew will save you from those sleepless nights as you know you are in safe hands. That's why on our productions we work with the most talented, hungry, filmmakers around as we believe in working as collaboratively as possible, which brings the best out in everyone. At the end of the day, we are in the creative industry for a reason. 

Equipment

One of the most frustrating areas for filmmakers is soucing high-quality, reliable equipment to shoot your short or feature films. It will likely be the most costly area as choosing the perfect gear and renting or hiring equipment can be a never-ending task. But we have the perfect solution. We now rent out our equipment to local filmmakers to support them in their projects, whether that be a university project, a commercial or a film. That means more of your budget can be spent on other important areas such as location, set, props and crew etc.
