Calls go to the voice mail. Lonely cars and street lights roam the highway by night. People at the street view are connected by threads. The patient leads a perfect life. Please leave a message after the tone is a story about disconnection, about the struggle with real life encounters and about living outside of your own life.’
Risto-Pekka Blom graduated from technical education but never felt motivated to pursue a career as technician. For a few years he was looking for his purpose in life, until in the age of 27 he started a short course of Audiovisual Media and Expression, after which he graduated from Tampere Polytechnic School of Art and Media in 2005. Since then Blom’s video art and experimental short films have been exhibited in festivals and events in over twenty countries. His film Theme Park (2015) has won the Main Prize at Tampere Film Festival and Helsinki Short Film Festival in 2015.
