Twilight Zone-inspired short film about a disturbed man and the woman of his recurring dreams (or from a past life?) FILM IS HALF DONE!
The Twilight Zone was the main inspiration for this mystery drama about Charlie, a socially anxious recluse plagued by recurring visions of the same woman... who he then meets in real life. Is it fate, déjà vu, or are these dreams perhaps memories of a life they've lived before?
The film is shot on Hi-Def and will run around 20 minutes in length. Approximately half of the film has already been shot and we need your help to finish the second half!
In January of 2010, we filmed the present-day scenes of the main character: antisocial, manic-depressed and drinking himself to death. Then he meets Fay and his world is spun topside. Charlie begins to turn his life around. This part has been filmed and you can see some footage in the video above.
Throughout the film, Charlie has recurring dreams in which he appears as an idealized version of himself: cleaned-up, confident and in much better shape than the present-day character. To prepare for these scenes in the second part of filming, actor Dennis Hurley has undergone training and to get in the same great shape as his character. By the time we pick up filming again in August of 2011, Dennis will be a whole new man!
