DREAMS AND OTHER NIGHT FEARS
Hermes Pittakos (2012)
Hermes Pittakos is a recent London College of Fashion graduate with a BA in Make-up and Prosthetics for Performance. Dream Archive Vol. 1-4 is a film showcasing his work. The film follows a mysterious protagonist (played by Ron Athey) into his dreams, where he experiences aspects of his psyche through meetings with strange beings created by Hermes Pittakos using makeup, wigs and prosthetics. Each dream sequence is inspired by one of the four elements – Earth, Air, Fire and Water. The original script and concept came from Hermes’ personal experiences of sleep-paralysis. He has used his dreams as inspiration to create a fictional world filled with mythology, ancient rituals and surrealist characteristics.
