Video Spot

"I was asked to develop a film/ad with the following premise: a film that takes place inside a motel, but not an ordinary motel, the one and only MOTELX (the eternal cliché setting of horror movies).
And so MOTELX was born, a mixture of a B-movie trailer with some Grindhouse influences. Four characters walk along the motel's room and halls: the naive waitress (Maria do Mar), the dead bride who haunts the guests (Joana Faria), the lost outsider whose car broke down and needs a place to spend the night (Cesário Monteiro) and of course the mysterious stranger trying to save all the characters (Carlos Afonso)."
