On August 10 The BUREAU will proudly premiere the original short film 'Sleep Tight', directed by Ani Simon-Kennedy of Bicephaly, with cinematography by DP and filmmaking-partner Cailin Yatsko. The upcoming release marks the first foray into the horror genre for the immensely talented NYC-based team, whose recent work over the years has been full of risk-taking and experimentation between silent, score-drive feature films, documentaries, a range of short films, to commercials. Few filmmakers are able to cover so much ground during an entire career, let alone a few short years, and with such beautiful results.
Interested in pushing the limits of storytelling within a confined runtime, Ani and Cailin, along with writing partner, Lilli Cooper, set out to create an atmospheric and haunting film with the goal of getting under the audience's' skin in as short a runtime as possible. 'Sleep Tight' features an original (and thoroughly creepy) score by Greg Thomas, starring twin actors Austin Johnson Aiden Johnson, and Lilli Cooper.
'Sleep Tight' was shot on the Ursa 4K with the generous and diligent support of Blackmagic Design, a featured BUREAU sponsor and champion of independent filmmaking.
