100% Human and Blake Bogosian Shoot at Corduroy Media
One of the best parts of having a production company is getting to support the work of other artists and filmmakers. When I got a Kickstarter campaign email last year to help fund Blake Bogosian’s short Documentary series 100% Human I jumped at the opportunity. Blake was one of Corduroy’s early editors when the company was still run out of a spare bedroom. I remember one afternoon when working together he discovered a pigeon stuck inside the wall and rescued it by opening the drawer of a built in cabinet. Anyway Blake is a fantastic story teller but the the thing that drew me to his project 100% Human, beyond his ability to tell a compelling story, was the simplicity of the device through which he decided to tell these stories. His project is a series of very short (1-2min) documentaries on what makes each subject human … the stories are as broad as the subject matter … Each piece is shot and finished in simple black and white photography and contain barely more than an interview and a signature.
100% Human is raw simple story telling at it’s finest – refreshing, inspiring and sometimes sad, this series honors the diversity in each one of us while recognizing that with which we have in common…
