Experiencing Interruptions?

In Darkness

In Darkness is a moody piece about a young woman awakening from sleep, perhaps after having a bad dream. She has a quick telephone conversation with her mother in which she may be hiding something. She continues with her morning seemingly troubled. The original soundtrack is intended to add to the film's dark and uneasy mood.

Director Biography

A63800ea40 headshot
Carmine Scarpa's principal training in the visual arts has been in photography. He has taken photography workshops with internationally known artists and teachers, including Ernestine Ruben, Eikoh Hosoe, Lois Greenfield, and George Krause. Mr. Scarpa's photographic work concentrates on the nude and the expressive variations found in that genre. In addition to delving into other visual arts, including painting, he has written poetry, songs, conceptual pieces, a children's story, a one-act play, and has recently finished a full length musical which he co-wrote with childhood friends, Thomas and John Thiel. Prior to becoming an attorney (now retired), he was employed as a commercial artist and performed as a musician and vocalist. In 2008, Mr. Scarpa published his memoir of childhood and youth entitled Save Me a Seat by the Drummer. His second book, Out of the Hand of God, describing his conversion to Judaism and his thoughts on Judaism and Kabbalah, was published in 2013. Mr. Scarpa's interests have grown to now encompass filmmaking and his first five short films are available for viewing on Vimeo.
