I have a lot of respect for Eric Kessler and his company for taking a stand.
Here is the press release issued on their website announcing that Kessler is severing ties with Philip Bloom.
Kessler Crane Ends Business Relationship with Philip Bloom
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
1901 Western Ave
(Plymouth) – In light of recent allegations of domestic abuse involving Philip Bloom, Kessler Crane has decided to immediately end any and all business relationships with Mr. Bloom. It saddens us deeply to make this decision regarding a long-time partner, friend and community contributor but as an organization, Kessler Crane takes allegations of this nature very seriously and absolutely does not tolerate or condone abuse of any kind. Our hearts are with all victims on the road to recovery and our hope is that the accused will seek forgiveness and help.
As a result of the current circumstances, Kessler Crane is making a donation to the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence, to aid them in their mission in working for the prevention and elimination of domestic violence – until the violence ends. We encourage all of those in the filmmaking community to find an avenue to support the end of domestic violence in their corner of the world and encourage anyone who may be dealing with abuse or knows of someone that is, to speak out and seek help.
