SEA SOAR, Bloom's first feature film, documents a Scripps Institution of Oceanography research expedition aboard the R/V Roger Revelle, from the Kaohsiung, Taiwan departure on March 17, 2014, to the Koror, Palau arrival on April 11, 2014. While steaming at 8 knots, a spatial survey of currents, temperature, and salinity were obtained from the Revelle's Doppler sonars and SeaSoar, an open ocean towed data acquisition vehicle equipped with a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) instrument. The scientific goal of the expedition was to observe major low-latitude zonal currents in the western Pacific and their encounters with abrupt topography. SEA SOAR showcases the science, the ship, and the sea, in B&W and color, hand and lab processed 16mm film. Miller's original score is composed solely from sounds recorded on the Revelle.
