“A Room Tour with Randy: The Dorm Room of Dreams” follows its title character and the otherworldly events changing his reality. The film was written and directed by main lead Travis Cook-Poeta, and was shot by soon to be Raven Andrew Hamilton. The short film begins with a blog from Randy showing off the purported “dream room” from which the rest of the story is soon to spiral out. Not long after these opening words does an ominous glitch appear and accompanying score begin signaling that all is not as it seems. Following this glitch, the blog continues leading to another screen glitch in which Randy falls to the floor. After picking himself up, Randy stumbles out the door and catches himself on another door frame which switches reality into a hand drawn animation style. When understandably panicked by the change in reality, Randy backs up into the wall behind him, altering reality once more to an existence in stop-motion. He then proceeds to run through the house while flipping between realities only to make his way out the door to find a nightmarish monster scaring him awake, sending him back to the real world.
