Being 1/4 Portuguese, I was pleased to see a fellow countryman have a video appear in the Coldwell Banker International Film Festival. This film from Portugal was created by Zé Pedro Abreu and is one of the most beautifully shot videos not only in the film festival, but that you’ll come across in short form content.

Abreu finds film-making to be a mixture of work and play, and he directly relates to that to buying a home. Here’s what he had to so about creating ‘Home Is…’:

Filmmaking is a labor of love, and for me, so is buying a house.

By the moment I saw (the concept of a video about the value of a home) I completely related to it and it was the perfect opportunity to match these two passions, showcasing a journey of a young adult discovering the real meaning of a home, and therefore, making one of the biggest decisions of his life: to buy his home.

In addition to the incredible cinematography, ‘Home Is…’ also boasts possibly the most attractive cast of the set of videos you’ll see in the film festival. The central character’s eyes make Cal Ripken’s look like they’re nothing. But let’s move on…

Take a look at the journey one man takes to discover what a home holds in store for him in this video from Portugal called ‘Home Is…’ at films.coldwellbanker.com.
