Your support of our film on Indiegogo will help everyone involved, including the cast and crew, continue to develop as filmmakers.

Overwood is a short film about a woman who returns to her childhood home for the first time after ten years abroad to find it sitting empty with the furniture covered in sheets. Her two sisters discover her in the house and confront her about her long absence from their lives.

Overwood is the name of the house that the sisters gave their home as children after watching the 1939 film Wuthering Heights because they liked the idea of homes having names.

The idea for the film is inspired by the Brontë sisters, although we are not using any of their life stories, just taking the inspiration of three creative sisters who grew up together. Anton Chekhov is also thought to have perhaps taken inspiration from the Brontë sisters for his play Three Sisters.

A filmmaker who inspires us is Margarethe von Trotta, who directed a trilogy of films about sisters, including Marianne and Juliane, one of our favorite films about sisters.

We have cast an extraordinarily talented trio of actors in Overwood. Angelina Castillo will play the youngest sister; Morgan Floyd will play the middle sister; Ali Meier will play the big sister.

Actors Cast in Next Short Film “Overwood”

We have cast an extraordinarily talented trio of actors in the new short film “Overwood” that we are shooting this semester: Angelina Castillo will play the youngest sister; Morgan Floyd will play the middle sister; Ali Meier will play the big sister.

“Overwood” is a short film about a woman who returns to her childhood home for the first time after living many years abroad to find it sitting empty with the furniture covered in sheets. Her two sisters, who come over to prepare the house to show to potential buyers, discover her in the house and confront her about her long absence from their lives.

“Overwood” is the name of the house that the sisters gave their home as children after watching the 1939 film “Wuthering Heights” because they liked the idea of homes having names.

Anton Chekhov is also thought to have perhaps taken inspiration from the Brontë sisters for his play “Three Sisters”.

A big influence on this film is the work of Margarethe von Trotta, who directed a trilogy of sister films, including Marianne and Juliane (Die Bleierne Zeit, 1981).

We plan to shoot November 14-16. Supporters, include Z’Tejas and Pluckers Wing Bar, who have each agreed to donate lunch on one of the shooting days for the cast and crew. Thank you to them for supporting our filmmaking team.
