COMING SOON -  Colorway Productions and Static Sifting Films, in collaboration with Manderfilm, present an experimental mixed-media sci-fi short film written, directed, produced, and edited by Teresa-Esmeralda Sanchez.

Plagued by recurring nightmares and unable to sleep, Melissa joins her cyber-curious friend in a test to see if an app can reveal what's in her dreams. Is she prepared for what she might find?  

Inspired by early experimental/surrealist cinema; in combination with limited digital effects, this film utilizes an analog visual effect called direct animation.

Direct animation, also referred to as drawn-on film animation, scratch film, or cameraless animation is a technique done by manipulating the film stock directly. Here you can see the test animation being practiced on some found footage.
