Private Project

Shadow In The Mirror

Shadow In the Mirror is a psychological thriller that takes shards of real history and legends and uses them to build a story about pursuit of knowledge and history, and how identity can be ultimately surrendered to either.

When Dr. Amy Collins decides to spend her research grant at an isolated lodge once owned by a long forgotten female silent screen star, strange things begin to happen. The enigmatic caretaker seems cantankerous and unhelpful, and Amy's relationship with a female undergrad seems to be falling apart, all while a series of strange events and dreams lead her to question her own sanity.
