Rupture

A short film about J. Robert Oppenheimer, the head of the Manhattan Project. It's rather metaphysical.

It was shot in 2006 at Fort Knox, near Searsport, Maine. The footage of the ocean is from Bailey Island, ME. I used an Arriflex S (Tri-X reversal pushed 1.5 stops, Ektachrome 100D), a Marantz tape recorder (mono), a Shure SM-58 Uni w/ a parabolic reflector, and an Olympus Pearcorder. The telecine was pretty bootleg.
