Awarded Bronze for Best Microfilm in October round, “Rage” is a powerful 98-second work on boxing passion featuring Johanan (Joe) Gabriel. Directed by Seattle-based student filmmaker Myles Ross.
“An abandoned idea for a small class project, that emerged into something completely new. With ‘Rage’, I wanted to see if I could create the one thing I think lands at the heart of film; emotion. I may not be able to test my mettle with feelings too complex or incredible, but with this film, there is one single emotion I was trying to capture… Shot in one day, and after a post period of nearly a month plus screenings, I hope I was able to channel a little bit of my own ‘Rage’ into you watching this”, says director Myles Ross.
