Hallucination

Hallucination is a discarded ending from a book I started in 2013. The final reveal didn't fit the tone of the novel, but it had the potential to stand alone. When the opportunity to create short films came about, this was the first script I cranked out. This is the first short film I've written/directed, and it's an official selection of the 2014 Hollyshorts Film Festival.
