Anamnesis: the recollection or remembrance of the past.
Anamnesis is the extraordinary sci-fi web series about the phenomenon of lucid dreaming.
The series focuses on four principal characters whose lives intersect due to lucid dreams:
- Hannah (Mallory Marie Wedding) - a young woman whose crusade to unravel the mystery behind the murder of her fiance continues in her dreams
- Vera (Deborah Jensen) - an expert hacker who suffers from night terrors
- Noah (Brad C. Wilcox) - a happily married music composer who begins to suspect his reality isn't what it seems
- Sean (Zach Brown) - a man who revels in the freedom lucid dreaming affords him
Written and directed by Alex Calleros & MIchael Tucker for Finite Films, the micro-budgeted Anamnesis is a sumptuous production on EVERY level.
The underlying mystery of how these four very different individuals are inextricably linked is poignant, and engrossing. This feat is accomplished by a smart script that benefits greatly by the writers having done thorough research on the subject matter.
The cast provides some of the most nuanced and engaging performances I've ever seen in a web series. Most notably, Brad Wilcox as Noah is riveting in his portrayal of a man coming to grips with the painful truth of his life.
However, the series cinematography by Terrance Stewart is the icing on this delectable cake.
Simply put, Anamnesis is gorgeously shot.
In fact, you will be hard pressed not to hit the "pause" button in order to soak in the beautiful compositions of light and color on your screen.
Part of the core mission of Finite Films is to produce cinema-level quality independent films. If this series is any indication, they are more than capable.
