About The Secret Number

The Secret Number is a short Sci-Fi Psychological Drama that was created over a period of two years by a team of young filmmakers from the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Based on the short story by Igor Teper, The Secret Number is about a man whose world is thrown into question. Psychiatrist Simon Tomlin (Daniel Jones) has a troubling conversation with one of his patients - a brilliant mathematician named Ersheim (Tom Nowicki), who intends to prove the existence of a secret integer between three and four. Ersheim's delusion compels Tomlin to dig deeper, but he only uncovers more questions -- about fate, connection… the nature of reality.

After his junior year he moved to the Netherlands to direct a 3D animated short film called Sintel for the Blender Foundation, which now has over 2 million views on YouTube.
