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 feature-length films 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.
Our Film Production Offer
When deciding to make a film it can be an extremely daunting process as there are several crucial factors to take into consideration. How can I finance this film? How do I find the right people? etc. But the most common question is where do I start? That's where we come in! As an experienced video production company, we understand the industry inside and out. So working with you on your film we can adopt the perfect strategy that will see your brilliant idea get transformed onto the big screen.
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.
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.
