Dream in Twilight
This animated short, currently in production, depicts a derelict nightclub in a desolate cityscape. At night, the club fills with the supernatural citydwellers: prostitutes and criminals. Then, as the music starts to crank up, the club comes alive, and the whole building begins to gyrate and turn itself inside out to the music, revealing the grungy 70s interior decor, spinning mirrorballs and dancing characters.
