Philip Bloom: 3 Days in April

Philip Bloom is a UK-based filmmaker that lately has been doing a lot of work with HD video and 35mm film adapters. He has a number of film shorts available online at both his site and on vimeo. I’ve chosen 3 Days in April to show you as I feel it showcases a lot of the great technique he uses in his work. He likes to play with time, speeding up and slowing down depending on the mood he’s looking to evoke, and he uses depth of field to paint in the focal points of the images he’s displaying in a way that is subtle yet powerful. I also love the contrast in the three days as they are each very different from each other. Philip Bloom is creating some really beautiful work, and he’s definitely a filmmaker I’ll be keeping an eye on.
