Somniac is about a new pharmaceutical drug that causes a man's horrific visions to worsen. Watch Somniac now.
What drew me to this script the most was its visceral imagery. Visually, I wanted to create the image of a Saturday morning with sickly undertones, which we accomplished by pushing green tint into the shadows and lighting our night interiors minimally. The real antagonist of the film is "Big Pharma," which is represented by two masked figures with an "R" and "X" fridge magnet stuck to their foreheads. The figures are responsible for the Main Character's visions in an abstract sense (within the encounter sequences) but also because literally, they are supplying Sebastian with the drug that is worsening his condition.
