THE ROAD TO THE SANDMEN
‘The Road to the Sandmen’ is a short mockumentary set in the near future, where people are able to upload their dreams to the internet via a site known as yousnooze.com. The film follows a faceless documentary maker as he interviews three candidates for the coveted Golden Sandmen Award for the year’s best dreamer, finds out what effect the dream industry is having on society and tries to uncover the 'truth' behind the inventor of the dreaming technology, Drew Giggs.
