Nothing is what it seems in this visually stunning thriller by Giulio Sciorio. Oren Jay travels to NYC to start a new life only to be haunted by his past. Just when he meets the girl of his dreams, Rhonda, things take a turn for the worse. A crazed fan takes her obsession to the next level by abducting Oren, but what he doesn't realize is that she does not want him as a lover...she wants to become him. What unfolds is a dangerous, tangled web of seduction, drugs and double-crosses in this stylish thriller based on the album No One Ever Really Dies by Silver Medallion.
Slave - 1:33
The concept for Slave was inspired by my first project with Silver Medallion, Gravity. This was the NYC version of Gravity which contrasts the stark Phoenix urban landscape with non-stop urban life. Someone is stalking Oren J, keeping tabs on his every move but why?
My Dream - 1:54
Oren J OD's on some pills only to awaken in a dream like pseudo reality. Tortured by his ex's texts and now a demon in the form of a lego doppelgänger. The doppelgänger and Oren merge into one and hit the streets of Korea Town for some karaoke.
Mean Girls - 1:36
Oren J is abducted by his female stalker and taken to her cellar where he awakens. The rest is insanity and an epic girl fight.
