A disc on the floor, a beacon, a speaker, a storyteller who sits, a burgeoning fuse, and a separation of friends.
Shot on a Bolex H16 16mm film camera with Kodak Vision3 200T film stock, the film includes an original accompaniment along with ‘wild’ sounds recorded around the West and East Village, Manhattan. BLOOM touches on themes of separation, uniqueness, and loneliness. Motifs in imagery and sound signal these qualities. This short film was created for Kathy Rugh’s Film Studio I class.
