Director Statement

One of my friends from high school, who this film is based on, is always getting himself involved in strange and unusual niches in our culture. One that I found particularly interesting was the community of people dedicated to exploring lucid dreaming. Escapism has always been a very interesting idea to me, and it was the first thing that came to mind when thinking about creating a film about lucid dreaming. What if people were trying to achieve this ability for fear of the real world/real world responsibilities? That's interesting. -Noah Meister
