It’s not often that you come across projects that can be bridged together, but Kevin Rogers of Staten Island based production company, Backslash Bomb Productions, is on his way to doing just that. ‘Blink: The Observer’ is a short film about a world where a giant eye has appeared in the sky, sending civilization skydiving downwards towards a ruined earth of collapsing governments and failing crops as the world schisms between people worshiping the eye and people terrified of what the eye can do.

This short film is actually a prelude to an actual independent feature film that is now in pre-production. And all of it is written, directed, and produced by Rogers. Rogers himself helms directly from Staten Island.
