The Nightmare

By Primeministerpaul

I studied dreams and nightmares last year (when i should have been revising for my psychology exam) and created this video.

It explores two dreams, one where the dreamer is being chased (by himself as the twist reveals) and by a faceless, manifestation of terror...a child with a box on their head. It sounded scary when I wrote it.

My work is loosely based on 'Meshes of the Afternoon' by Maya Deren and 'Un Chien Andalou' by both Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali - other great references for other people on here looking to do dream/surrealist work

I've had to remove all the music and sound effects used to comply with the HitRecord Accord but please feel free to check out the original here:

My first submission but please tear it to pieces and make it something great! Thank you :D
