Short Animation, 2010

© 2023 by Stella Salumaa. 

"Sleepwalker" talks about the blending of day to day reality and night, and how they affect each other. It pictures a girl who cannot sleep well because her daily life pushes itself into her dreams. Due to that she is tired during the day because her night life tends to influence her work and other daily activities. Her days and nights blend into one.
