The Dreamer is a story about a mid-level bureaucrat who starts losing his mind when an old friend publishes a best selling novel. The story is heavily influenced by Dostoevsky's novella, Notes from underground

When the film is completed, it will be entered into various film festivals, both nationally and internationally.

I've been writing screenplays, directing and producing shorts film for over a decade. Many of these projects have screened at film festivals, including: Warsaw Film Festival, Melbourne Underground and Cinefest Oz.
