Le Cirque Mentale - Fantasy Short Film by M. Mazel


An introverted and socially awkward 18-year-old Macy has had frequent carnival dreams for years that serve as her social escape. The dreams are led by the suave and manipulative Ring Master, who always puts Macy in the spotlight in her dreams. When her cousin Sam suggests she seek counseling because of how strange the dreams can be, she visits Peter the peer counselor. As her and Peter work on altering and eliminating the dreams, they take a darker turn to fight for their existence. The Ring Master proposes for Macy to perform in a dangerous grand finale, which leads to parallel consequences in the real world.

Good job. Good premise and story and I think well done for what appears to be a very low budget. I could see where improved lighting (it's very brightly lit for a twisted nightmarish dream) and audio and some improved acting could be pretty good.

But well done!
