Approach:
The concept is to capture the protagonist's (Lou Bloom) perversion of the American dream of perfect domesticity and safety of the home. The mundane act of getting ready to go out in a domestic setting is twisted into dangerous and violent events. Bloom is a ruthless character who comes across as being cool and distant at first. Bloom's simmering rage is exposed below the hardness of his cool surface by images of glowing heat. He capitalizes on the perceived danger of inner city crime seeping into the white suburbs and leaves a trail of burnt destruction in his wake.

Mood:
The references evoke a searing heat beneath the outer surface and a sense of brittleness. Dark colors give a sense of foreboding.

Process:
Everyday objects were experimented with. I discovered that the overcooked egg had a translucency that when backlit created the appearance of a molten surface on the egg. This discovery helped inject the scene with emotion.
