A comedy/drama art-house mystery about love, marriage, cough syrup, dogs, cigarettes, depression, and all the in between.

EXPLODE is a short film that explores the concept of control by delving into the lives of three men on a rapid downward spiral.

The Story:
A villainous faux Santa Claus wreaks havoc on the small town of Field Run, its depressed mayor, and an anger management-challenged police corporal by delivering a unique form of holiday cheer.

EXPLODE will be shot over the upcoming Summer in areas around Western Pennsylvania and Buffalo, New York. We are currently in pre-production. The screenplay is completed and we’re now working to acquire funds, hire our crew, set up casting sessions, complete storyboarding, scout locations, and do other general preparation for our shoot.

Our overall budget for the film is $10,000. The money we acquire here will be spread across pre-production and production. The additional needed funds will be acquired through a bank loan and the already established savings of the members of Birdhome Productions.
