Lucidity - Short Film Complete

I am proud to announce the completion of a passion project that I have been creating and working on for some time now.

The short film is set in the dream world of the main character, a young woman, who is lost in her subconscious and is searching through her memories looking for something familiar to wake her up and bring her home.  

I was inspired by the Poem, "A Dream Within a Dream" by Edger Allan Poe. Some of the poem is found in the narration but the story came from my own ideas of dreams, fate and reality all being mixed up together.

I originally had the idea for this short a number of years ago while still in school and the concept flared up again late in 2014. With the help of my leading lady Alysa van Haastert, we shot the majority of the project over December 2014 around Central Alberta. It was not until the fall of 2015 that I was able to put the finishing touches on the film with the help of sound designer Paul Zacharias.

I am proud to have completed this short and to now share it with you all! Thank you to all who were a part of creating this project.
