An impossible love story that escalates from lust to truth to reality. All three are equally dangerous.
As an addendum to the project video, we would like to say that we believe in this project and this story and we want to make it the right way. With the proper funding, we will be able to have the kind of production and post-production quality that we seek. Additionally, we will use a portion of the money to submit to film festivals in the United States and abroad. Thank you so much for your attention and support!
A chance sexual encounter with a handsome man leads one woman down an unforeseen path. As they share their darkest secrets, lust is replaced by love. But as the hours pass in their hotel room, they soon discover that the more they learn, the less they really know...and that outside that door, reality may end up tearing them apart.
Cast and Crew Bios:

She is also the writer of "Horror Bully" that was workshopped, performed as a stage piece then made into a film through her theater company, Matador, this past spring.

Sxv'Leithan Essex (Director/Editor)
Director Sxv'Leithan Essex (pronounced: 'skuh-lee-than ess-eks") started out into the arts when he destroyed his mother's kitchen by drawing monsters on it with crayon at the age of three. From there, it just became an addiction to creation.
Sxv'Lei's first credit as director came when he conceptualized, directed, production designed, edited and color corrected the video for 5FDP's 'The Way Of The Fist' which made 2008's Top 25 videos on MTV's Headbanger's Ball. He is also the beast behind the design of the band's iconic "Knucklehead Skull" that has become a globally recognized symbol to fans of rock music. Merchandise sales featuring this icon sell out instantly and the three albums that Sxv'Leithan Essex designed for the band now exceed over one million units worldwide.
In 2006, Sxv'Lei served as production designer on 'BLED' a film he also wrote, designed the look of the creature, the preliminary costumes, title sequences, the sets as well as all of the marketing materials. 'BLED' was released in 2007 on DVD through Lionsgate. The following year, he was commissioned to write another low budget film which was called 'A Darker Reality' which will be released through Lionsgate in December 2011.
Currently on his slate, Sxv'Leithan Essex is the writer/director of the feature film 'GROWL' which goes into production in 2012. Along with this, Sxv'Lei is also developing a low budget creature feature which he will write and direct called 'Hollyweird'. It is in active development at OneZero Productions.
Sxv'Lei has a great skill at creating not only an amazing visuals but coming in with a real "guerilla attack" when working with short filming schedules and budget constraints... and loves the challenge of it. To him it's just like drawing monsters with crayon.
