Brilliant Film

A short film about the space between wakefulness and sleep

Still from Brilliant (2014) short film

One of our best loved children’s shows has been transformed into a short film. Brilliant explores the secret games and the magical imaginings that happen when it’s time to go to sleep.

Imagine it’s bedtime.  Imagine it’s time to turn out the light. Imagine the universe turning, and the moon shining bright…

Brilliant is set in the magical space between wakefulness and sleep, and follows the journey of a girl who overcomes her fear of the dark.  Created especially for the very young, Brilliant is a playful and poetic adventure in a dreamlike world made of light.

Based on “Brilliant” a Fevered Sleep/Polka Theatre production
