films from the past, a cinema lover and a renaissance man, Guillaume
Campanacci, composed his maiden feature movie around a 'classic love
triangle, with a twist', against a Californian urban setting.The
story centers around two flatmates, Leila (Magen Mattox) and Sandy
(Montanna Gillis), who conspire to take revenge on Leila's sadistic
boyfriend (Guillaume Campanacci). It is a film underlined with violence
and told through strong, non-linear structure, with poetic and sensual
imagery. In essence, it's a meditation on friendship, love, trust, and
murder, presented to us as a perfect blend of reality and dream-like
fantasy sequences.As an artist, Guillaume Campanacci, is primarily interested in bringing back the flare of the 'Golden Age' of the French Cinema.

the prestigious engineer school "Arts et Metiers" in Aix en Provence and

But Guillaume did not feel fulfilled through modeling so he began to
write scripts, direct and act. He studied the Meisner technique at the
William Esper Studio in New York, and also studied with Anthony Abeson.
Guillaume worked under the direction of Emmanuel "Chivo" Lubezki
(Gravity, The Tree of Life) and David Fincher (Fight Club, Seven), and
acted with respected celebrities such as Jane Fonda, Eva Longoria and
Barbara Palvin. He wrote, directed, produced and acted in Devils in

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in.

Alyssa (Nolan) wakes up to find her home pillaged and her husband missing. The burglars have taken everything, down to the photos of her husband. The police offer little help so she turns to a friend of the family Eve (Crowl) for assistance. The film is less of a "who done it" and more of a "what happened."
The prolonged second act of the film focuses on the relationship between Eve and Alyssa. The suspense of the film lingers in the background while their relationship grows. In fact, clues of what is to come are clearly laid out in a way that allows the viewer to see where the film is headed before it gets there. I'm not sure if this is by design but the effect of having the stories trajectory clearly laid out gives the audience permission to accept this blossoming relationship.
Nolan and Crowl both give stunning performances that anc…
SWEET PARENTS review
Directed By: David Bly
Starring: David Bly and Leah Rudick
Written By: David Bly and Leah Rudick
Moving to New York City with ambitions of making it as an artist is an uphill battle. Hell, moving to New York with ambitions of breaking into fast food is an uphill battle. Exorbitant rent makes it difficult if not impossible to get a temp job while you audition, paint, write, or sculpt.

SWEET PARENTS is the story of a young couple who have been living the artists struggle in NYC for close to 8 years. Will has dreams of making it as a Chef and Gabby wants to become a professional sculptor. Both start side relationships, as last ditch efforts to support their careers, in what becomes a choice between ambition and lo…
