Sleepwalkers still

Thanks to your votes, the urban fantasy love story "Sleepwalkers," won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to “Sleepwalkers" writer and director Jason Merrin. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.

Here's what the project's about:

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.

Stick around for this week's Project of the Week! Want your project to be considered? Tell us about it.
