Midlands Spotlight - Lucidity
By midlandsmovies, Oct 29 2016 02:52PM
Upcoming short horror film Lucidity is being made in 2016 by a group of Midlands based creatives and with promotion next on their agenda, the filmmakers’ crowd-funding campaign is currently running to raise a budget for this ambitious project. Read on to find out more about this hallucinationary horror.
Without going all 'Inception', for the uninitiated lucid dreaming is a phenomenon when the dreamer knows they are in a dream and therefore are able to manipulate it and in this new film from Braybrook Films, the concept of the science and supernatural of this odd experience is explored.
Braybook Films is an independent film and media label based in Nottingham and Lucidity’s plot follows an office worker called Daniel who is making questionable life choices and at the same time suffering from a repetitive nightmare.
This dream state has Daniel beaten and bloodied and tied to a chair without any chance of escape. One night, he experiences his first lucid dream, which sparks him to make changes in his life. However, delving further into his nightmares to try and discover their meaning, the film poses the question whether Daniel will find the answers he searches for or will his nightmares engulf his life.
Written and directed by Oli Braybrook, the filmmaker has already produced and directed several short films in 2016 along with producing a 3-part TV pilot for Nottingham-based Coalescent Films called Print.
In addition, Lucidity has J. Carman as Cinematographer, who also worked on Print and is widely regarded as one of the top cinematographers coming out of the Midlands. Also on board is the superbly talented Jayne Hyman for SFX, who has worked on award winning shorts such as Cannibals and Carpet Fitters and Lab Rats. Midlands Movies previously covered Jayne’s fantastically frightful work here.
This new short film has high hopes of getting out and known to the Midlands film community and with their team all hailing from, or living in, the region, they hope this will give local film fans all the more reason to pledge to their funding campaign.
