Nero Bloom – Excerpt

Winner of Best Student Feature at a prestigious Hollywood festival in 2009, “Nero Bloom: Private Eye” was a smashing success among critics and fans alike. Created on a shoestring budget by two undergrad students, this 45-minute feature film sets the bar for true independent cinema. With a cast and crew of over 100 volunteers, 23 filming locations, and over 6 months of principle photography, “Nero Bloom” is a rousing example of cinematic storytelling. In this excerpt from the film, we follow the hero character as he shadows his mark on the eve of an unfortunate circumstance.
