"The Secret Number" is a short sci-fi (ish) psychological drama that was created over a period of two years by a team of young filmmakers from the Savannah College of Art and Design.


Based on the short story by Igor Teper, THE SECRET NUMBER is about a man whose world is thrown into question. Psychiatrist Simon Tomlin (Daniel Jones) has a troubling conversation with one of his patients - a brilliant mathematician named Ersheim (Tom Nowicki), who intends to prove the existence of a secret integer between three and four. Ersheim's delusion compels Tomlin to dig deeper, but he only uncovers more questions -- about fate, connection… the nature of reality.

    In this music video/ short film, in order to overcome a difficult breakup story, the character goes through a galactic journey, provided by a mysterious helmet.

    The music video was made by a mix of techniques, mainly traditional 2D animation (frame by frame), and projection mapping. Based on real events in the singer’s personal life (and mine too...).
    I hope you like it!
