We are seeking post production funds to complete the movie. Funds will be used for musical score, sound design, color correction, ADR, mixing, film festival promotion and marketing.
One man is held captive in a futuristic, automated prison, kept alive by a computerized jailer. His only means of psychological escape is to live in an imaginary world with the woman he loves. He suspects a catastrophic event has occurred to the outside world and he is forced to outsmart a security computer in order to escape back to a world and a woman that may already be gone.
'Somnio' began filming in June 2014 inside an industrial space in Canoga Park, CA. We shot our exterior sequences in the Mojave Desert, California City, Granada Hills, San Fernando, downtown Los Angeles, Denver and the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
