  2. "The Secret Number" is a sci-fi 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.

    secretnumber.colinlevy.com

    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.
