Hereunder Graduation Film

As part of my major, I collaborated with writer/director Greg O'Reilly on his graduation film Hereunder.

Ivan, a not so successful gallery owner, and his little brother Robbie, a successful artist, find themselves at odds when their attempt at insurance fraud is on the brink of ruining their lives. After staging the robbery of one of Robbie's most famous pieces, the two are faced with insurers in their closet asking about a ‘photo of a photo’ and a ‘geotag’. The brothers come to a head as familial bonds are tested when it's discovered that this fraud runs much deeper that initially perceived.
Hereunder is a surrealist film that captures the desperate pursuit of emotional security in times of extreme stress.
