"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.

    Please enjoy our award-winning short film, ROCKETSHIP, a 15-minute family drama in which an unlikely bond is forged between a lonely boy and an elderly man claiming to be a former astronaut. Together, they transform a vintage vacuum cleaner into a rocketship for a surprising journey. ROCKETSHIP has screened at film festivals across North America, won the 2015 Online New England Film Festival, and is being featured inflight on Virgin Airlines worldwide. It was named one the Cleveland International Film Festival's "Must See Films" which said, "It's magical. It's epic. The little boy who plays the lead is fantastic." vimeo.com/150147035

    Here is my little short film about the creation of a navigational device. I created it alone and acted too. It's been featured on film shortage already.
