Documentary Project

The “Water and Oil” documentary film project is lead by student Brent Clouse and is part of Professor Kathy Bruner’s documentary film class.  The film follows Roger Feldman’s time spent at Taylor while installing his sculpture and investigates the different views and perceptions members of the community have towards a new campus monument.

Both students and professors will voice their opinions on the effect modern art is playing in their lives now that Roger’s work is completed.  Do some students “get it” while others don’t?  Do some care enough to even speak up?  Is the goal of Roger’s work lost when we don’t voice our opinions and discuss the sculpture?

“Water and Oil” is a film that follows an artist’s journey and the effect his work continues to have on others.  The film features students Graham Burns, Sarah Schlesinger, as well as other members of Taylor University’s campus community.  The film will be completed by the end of the semester.


Brent Clouse (Producer) is a junior media production major with a minor in English writing.  He is from Greenwood, Indiana, and hopes to get involved in screenwriting after graduation.

Anaya Dean (Director) is a senior media production major. She is from New Providence and eventually plans on returning home to help further develop media in the Bahamas.

Alex Martin (Editor) is a senior media production major. Originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Alex is planning on moving to Los Angeles after he graduates to pursue a career in filmmaking.

On this page we will be updating their progress, along with providing a link to the finished product.  For more information on the Media Communications department at Taylor University, click here.

    Hi! Thanks for checking out the “Water and Oil” documentary film blog. This is as awesome way to discuss what the the Taylor community thinks about our newest landmark — Roger Feldman’s “Water and Oil” sculpture, located next to the Sammy statues. I’m curious, what do you think of it? Do you understand it? Is it an eyesore? Are you one of the art students who poured your sweat into constructing it last week? Let’s talk about it; the more discussion the better!

    If you have an opinion you’d like to voice for the documentary, go ahead and shoot me an email.

    Thanks for the exhibit! I was very intrigued by “Wisnu Sasongko.” I found the paintings to be very moving…especially the painting in reference to the Hurricane in Indonesia. It was a powerful piece as well. I also enjoyed searching for the words in Wisnu and thought that they added extra depth and thought to the composition.

    Thanks again!
