Green House

2012 · 6:12 · Written by Robin Brande · PRODUCED by Pam W. COUGHLAN · DIRECTED BY WILLIAM R. COUGHLAN

The Coffmans are desperate to win their bid for residency in a new, environmentally friendly condo. Putting their best face forward, they work to convince a jaded government auditor that their lifestyle makes them worthy of acceptance. But when another couple vies for the same home, a battle for environmental superiority begins.

Tohubohu returned to action for the inaugural 48 Hour Film Project spin-off competition 48 Go Green. Reuniting much of our core troupe (including writer Robin Brande, producer Pam W. Coughlan, and director Wiliam R. Coughlan), “Green House” was produced entirely across the weekend of February 18th through the 20th, 2011. The film premiered at the AFI Silver Theatre on Tuesday, February 22nd.

48 Go Green IMDb SAG-AFTRA
‘Green House’ was an interesting challenge for our regular production troupe: crafting an entertaining film that advances an environmentally friendly message without coming across as overly heavy-handed. And coming off of a string of darker productions (the apocalyptic ‘Uncertainty Principle,’ the black comedy ‘Number One With a Bullet,’ and the horror-tinged drama ‘Liability’), we were eager to return to the world of lighter diversions. We were fortunate to have many of our frequent collaborators on board, including producer Pam W. Coughlan, writer Robin Brande, and director of photography Jesse Achtenberg — not to mention veteran character actor Joe Hansard. The resulting film pokes fun at extreme social one-upmanship — particularly the notion of focusing on the appearance of environmental responsibility at the expense of actual, substantive action for change.
