So, here's a short film that I made as part of my college course. The objective was to create an 8 minute film based on a short story/novel, or poem. I chose to adapt a short sci-fi/horror story called "Sleep". I've made a few significant changes, but the central story is intact.

Here is a link to the film. Feel free to check it out and let me know what you think:
