‘Lucid,’ out now digitally, tells the story of an introverted young man named Zel (Laurie Calvert) who gets the opportunity to drastically change his life when his enigmatic neighbour Elliot (Billy Zane) introduces him to the concept of Lucid dreaming.
Writer/Director Adam Morse started losing his sight ten years ago due to a rare mitochondrial disease that has left him with partial peripheral sight. Adam used screen reader and magnification software to write his screenplay before going out to pitch his first feature film project whilst keeping his condition a secret from others in the industry. Morse eventually went on to be backed by Executive Producer Ben White and joined forces with Producer’s Adam Rose and Julia Varvara to realize his vision. Adam used a 60-inch director’s monitor on set to follow the action, frame the shots, and direct the actors. Adam publicly revealed that he is legally blind one week before the film made its festival premiere in Edinburgh and he is now championing diversity by blazing a trail for differently abled artists around the world.
‘Lucid’ also stars Billy Zane (Curfew, Titanic), Sadie Frost (Absolutely Fabulous), Sophie Kennedy Clark (Philomena), Felicity Gilbert (Nymphomaniac: Vol. 1”) and Cristian Solimeno (Rush).
After premiering at the 72nd Edinburgh International Film Festival where it was nominated for the prestigious Michael Powell Award in the Best of British category,’Lucid’ went on to win Best Picture along with Best Actor for Billy Zane and best director for Adam Morse at the 2019 Gold Movie Awards in London.
