Nine surreal landscapes. Within the Unconscious, people live in a world where metaphor and symbol are as real as the weather, where the inner workings of the mind form the reality that surrounds them. Animals speak, statues bleed and people seek purpose in world at once alien and familiar.

About This Team

Sara Murphy and Cait met while working on the set of Philip Seymour Hoffman's directorial debut, Jack Goes Boating. Sara has always been supportive, funny and offered her assistance, emotionally and intellectually, with any project that she has worked on. We greatly appreciate Sara's perspective on life and on film. 

Damon Pelletier is our set and character designer for stop-motion sequences.  Damon is currently working with the design team for the 2014 Olympics.  Damon's attention to detail and his craftsmanship will bring a whole new level to Stories of the Unconscious.
