This is a story about Photographer Isabelle Pisano, a woman who became hearing-impaired after a violent car accident. As she struggles to cope in the muffled and scary new normal something beautifully-terrifying happens.
SOUND is a proof-of-concept for a feature script we have in development. The feature-length story is slightly different than our short.
Meet Our Team
With this kind of film it's ideal to have a decent size crew but with the budget we had the three of us found creative ways to make this film.

An enthralling and engaging experience from beginning to end, Sound tells a most unique story and it's a story you're unlikely to forget anytime soon.
The Independent Critic
Tawan Bazemore accesses the stylistics of poetic cinema...
It's a short that will jar your senses and leave you emotionally stunned,which quite frankly is what more short films should do.
That ending will stay with you, it's that good.

Two Roads International Film Festival awarded SOUND with four awards, Best Short, Best Innovation - Director, Best Sound and Best Color
I love the idea of shaping a world within a frame and telling a layered story through direction and subtext. My task as a Director, for Sound was to tell a complete story without dialogue and use sound design as the antagonist. The concept isn't just about a woman, Isabelle, being subjected to deafening sounds. It's about how a violent car accident changed her life.
I wanted her scary new-normal and isolation to also be intimate. So, I was very careful in crafting the mood and texture; from camera and lenses to wardrobe and production design. The idea is take the audience with her.
