Adam Kirschner - aka Noble Sun - is on the run from a mysterious intruder, in Vancouver-based director Devon Mussett's visceral promo for Sleepin'. Through a series of increasingly bizarre, dream-like vignettes, Kirschner drops in and out of four surreal worlds, before ultimately finding himself back in his bed with a woman he adores. The entertaining narrative structure - including moments of cartoonish ultraviolence and gore - makes this a standout visual with plenty to appreciate, from the wild set pieces to Kirschner's multifaceted performance."We threw together a incredible Canadian cast, a group of some of the best Vancouver filmmakers, some incredible local sponsors and a variety of unique Hollywood North locations to create the wild ride that is the Sleepin' music video," says Mussett."We used a mix of old school camera tricks and contemporary visual effects to create a film that makess you want to double back, to fully understand what just happened."
