Sleep - Why Did You Do That?

While Sleep starts off as a surreal romp into a dreamlike state, over time we're ultimately clued into the fact that something has gone terribly wrong for the protagonist. A mysterious duck asks over and over again: Why did you do that? While hazy pills float subtly across the screen.

Despite the stylish appearance, Sleep is about a girl delving into her own subconcious and ultimately succumbing to darkness after engaging in self destructive action. Despite the message of the short, the colorful presentation and poppy musical accompaniment offset the drama unfolding. A perfect mix of sadness and exhilaration, with some mesmerizing visuals to boot.
