Congratulations to "Sleepwalkers" writer-director Jason Merrin! The project received the most votes to win December's Project of the Month. The prize is a consultation from our Project of the Month partner, Tribeca Film Institute.
Here's a look at the film's pitch:
Ben is a "Sleepwalker" - a secret alternate personality that takes over every night when his "Awake" self goes to sleep. Whereas "Awake Ben" is resigned to a life of monotony, "Asleep Ben" is determined to make the most of every night with his other "Sleepwalker" friends. But the lives of both Bens become complicated when Sleeping Ben falls for Allison, an "Awake" waitress at an all night diner, and the lines between their two worlds - previously so distinct - begin to blur.
