The characters

Christelle

focused driver

interpreted by Justine Noirot

 

Chris is the artist type. She's sweet and tender, but she has also a control freak side. If you want to drive, get your own car, she won't let you take the wheel ! Unless for Camille... Maybe.

Léa

free mind passenger

interpreted by Elise Lissague

 

Léa is a daddy's girl. Now she has graduated, she feels burdenless, she can do as she pleases. Sometimes she can also be a real bitch, messing aroud and teasing Florent.

Camille

preoccupied passenger

interpreted by Julian Ciais

 

Camille always succeeds. Or that's what he wants us to think. What if he was wrong from the beginning ? What if he fails ? With his cool attitude and his pride, could he let his weakness appears?

Florent

undisciplined passenger

interpreted by Victor Bouis

 

Flo is a funny, positive and full of ressources dude. He likes girls a lot, specificly Léa. His gadget collectionner side gave him the nickname of "Inspector Gadget".

The Shooting

After a successfull crowdfunding campain, we were able to move to the south of France and shot the movie. It took 5 days to shoot our 20 minutes script. We had such a beautiful weather, it was the best conditions ever. Everybody was very excited about the film and the place we were filming. Below you can see some pictures from the set.

Crew

Manon

Director/Writer/DOP

Juliette

Director/Writer 

We met in the south of France, in Montpellier, during our cinema's studies. Then we pursue in Paris, in our own speciality. Nowadays, Manon is a camera assistant and Juliette is a script writer. We started the writing of this short film in 2013 with the same vision of what should be Open road. In no time, it was obvious that we wanted to produce it, and to be both directors. We are working up on this short since a fews months and, step by step, we are surrounding ourselves with a talented and very motivated crew!
