Cannes: Bloom Takes ‘High Strung’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Dance drama stars new talent Keenan Kampa and Nicholas Galitzine

Alex Walton’s Bloom has boarded “High Strung,” handling worldwide sales for the dance drama.

Bloom has begun to introduce “High Strung” to domestic and international buyers at Cannes, where it is screening the completed film.

A dance drama that features 62 dancers from London, Paris and New York, “High Strung” stars Jane Seymour and introduces Keenan Kampa (the first and only American dancer at Russia’s Mariinsky Ballet) and Nicholas Galitzine (“The Beat Beneath My Feet”).

“High Strung”is written by Janeen and Michael Damian, who produced under their Riviera Films banner. Michael Damian directed. Dave Scott (“Step Up 2: The Streets,” “So You Think You Can Dance”) oversaw the choreography.

In “High Strung,” a girl from the Midwest (Kampa), who has had a disciplined classical music education, and Johnnie (Galitzine), a laid-back, improvisational British street musician, are thrown together and have to prepare for a competition that could change their lives.

“High Strung” “showcases dance styles from all over the world, making this film universally appealing,” said Walton.

Bloom’s Cannes slate also features another new title, “Woodshock,” from the Rodarte clothing brand founders Laura and Kate Mulleavy.
