Exploring the idea of internal struggle, Engulf You is a film painting the never ending ‘dance’ of emotions that make us. Much like the concept of the cosmic duality of Yin and Yang, our emotions are in a constant tango, vying for victory over one another. This film focuses particularly on the claustrophobia within us when anxieties and self doubt truly engulf us.
Found Format (Steven Cleavland & Kyle Kadow)
Found Format is a director duo from Milwaukee, WI. Steven Cleavland & Kyle Kadow were friends in high school turned film-making partners in 2017. They’ve been getting their feet wet in short films, music videos, and commercials for the last few years. They center on pushing the limits of the real and abstract while keeping the themes of humanity at the core. Still early in their film careers at age 25, Found Format has so much potential for growth in the stories they will tell.
