ABOUT SLEEP CREATURE

Sleep Creature is the brainchild of independent filmmaker Jay Burleson. 

 

Jay Burleson is a self-taught independent filmmaker from Hartselle, AL. Burleson’s horror/documentary/comedy hybrid THE NOBODIES, shot for less than $500 on a VHS-C camcorder, was picked up for distribution by the iconic independent film studio Troma Entertainment in 2017. After debuting at the Sidewalk Film Festival in Birmingham, AL, THE NOBODIES received a special jury prize for Best Alabama Film. Burleson’s first feature, ANATHEMA ARIENETTE, also screened at the Sidewalk Film Festival in 2015 and drew a comparison to the early works of Adam Wingard (YOU’RE NEXT, BLAIR WITCH) by Twitch Film. Burleson’s next two features, A HOUSE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD and THE LONELY, are planned for festival debuts in 2019, and his next feature film, CITY OF RED, is already in the works.
