As you fall to sleep tonight...

The subconscious can create some very unusual and distinctive stories. As you go to sleep tonight ask yourself what is the most amazing story I can tell? The trick is not to accept the first story that comes to you, but to push to find ever stranger stories.

I've made two films using this game: Mangetout is a story about a boy who reguritates the past and Keel is a ghost story.

  1. The HYPNAGOGIC STATE ( the place between wakefullness and sleep) was celebrated by the Surrealists.Max Ernst called his disquieting collage novels Hypnagogic Stories.

    When you are falling asleep and you jolt back into being awake is called a HYPNAGOGIC REFLEX.
