Noise From The Other Room
The film acts as a moving portrait of Jabari. Made up of all talent with zero acting experience, the film sought to capture as honest a portrait as possible.
Originally titled ‘The Moments in Between’, the story is comprised of the mundane and fleeting interactions that we often forget to appreciate and only in retrospect do we see the beauty in. A call to live simply and in the moment as much as possible.
Jabari finds solace in his friends and family as he deals with the highs and lows of a passionate relationship. Her warmth continues to haunt him.

The story behind the film
The film acts as a moving portrait of Jabari, a young man in Brooklyn. Made up of all talent with zero acting experience, the film sought to capture as honest a portrait as possible.
Instead of writing a script and expected talent to deliver dialogue, we wrote a screenplay made up of elements and environments the talent was already familiar with. By establishing the controlled but familiar environment, the interactions between the talent feel real because they are. The couple featured is an actual couple, and my director of photography and I were lucky enough to have them allow us to shoot an honest and raw argument for the sake of adding a dose of reality to the piece. The score was written to fit the emotion of the characters and was intended to add contrast. At the peak of their argument, the music is calm and hypnotic; to indicate the love beneath the rage.
Shot in one cold day in Brooklyn, New York.
