Anamnesis by Alex Calleros

Badge winner Winner for Summer 2012 International Film Contest in Drama

When Adam wakes up in a childhood memory, he figures he must be dreaming. But as his girlfriend, Hannah, leads him deeper into his subconscious, he begins to realize the truth...

This film was inspired by the following user-submitted constraints:

•One character must use refrigerator poetry magnets to leave a note/message for another character.
•One scene must take place in a women's bathroom — the male lead must be having a discussion with a female character.
•Someone has just revisited their worst memory from middle school.
•At least three characters must be related.
•One character loves taking blame for others' mistakes.
•The dialogue from one scene must be exactly the same in one scene as it is in another, yet the tone of both scenes must be different.
•The film must have one 2-minute-long shot.

This film is a true winner. The score was beautifully done as were the special effects. I loved the fluidity of the editing!! The casting of the actors seemed to fit the characters very well, but I think the man in glasses should have looked more haunting and more creepy in a sense. That is my only critique. A wonderful film all around that had me at the edge of my seat. Great job!!

Thanks everyone, it means so much to hear such kind words from fellow filmmakers! Kurt - it was filmed on an HDSLR (Canon 7D) with a set of prime Nikon lenses (our D.P. had an adapter to attach them to a Canon).

Wow. Outstanding. Riveting. The build-up of tension is phenomenal.
