Intermedium, Mainframe Pictures’ newest short from Emmy® Award-winning director Erik Bloomquist (The Cobblestone Corridor, Long Lost) and screenwriter Taylor Turner is now available online. Erik Bloomquist is a two-time Emmy® winner (Outstanding Writer & Outstanding Director) and former top 200 Director on HBO’s Project Greenlight.
Described as a Ryan Murphy-esque fusion of Casper and La La Land, the 21-minute supernatural romance tells the story of an obsessive-compulsive teenager named Bridget Daugherty (Emily Keefe) who finds herself struggling to co-exist with the ghost of a boy named Kyle Donovan (Beau Minniear), who haunts her family’s new home. Bloomquist notes in a Director statement: “The film explores what it is to see and be seen—and why the smallest moments of intimacy are often the most profound.“

The film was awarded several distinctions over the course of its successful festival run—including Best Short Film at Sanford Film Festival and Best Short Screenplay at Mystic Film Festival—as well as screening at the historic TCL Chinese Theatre as part of the Oscar-qualifying HollyShorts Film Festival.
Since its release, praise for Intermedium has been near-universal: Film Threat’s review is rife with acclaim and concludes by describing it as “an authentic, heart-rendering romantic drama that will leave viewers floored.” Richard Propes of The Independent Critic, meanwhile, lauds Keefe’s performance as “absolutely dynamite” (Keefe won Best Actress in a Short at Reading Film Festival) and likens Minniear to “a more wistful” James Dean, predicting that the young actor is “just waiting to be discovered.”
Erik Bloomquist is a two-time New England Emmy® Award winner (Outstanding Writer & Outstanding Director), 8-time nominee, and former Top 200 Director on HBO’s Project Greenlight.
