Synopsis of "Ocularist"
Art and science intertwine in the adept hands of ocularist Fredric Harwin, a
medical illustrator who unites the dexterity of a skilled craftsman with an
artist's textural caress in his unique creations: custom acrylic eyes so
vibrantly alive it seems a cruel twist of fate that they are unable to see.
Yet, for Harwin's patients, it's the renewed confidence to be seen that
fills their catastrophic void.

This eight-minute short illuminates the process of Harwin's intricate
craftsmanship. By using the camera to manipulate the viewer's visual
experience, director/editor Vance Malone subtly illustrates the theme of
altered eyesight. Vocal tracks are innovatively weaved with the original
soundtrack, blurring the line between documentary and music video.
