Over the course of the last year, Portland State University Television (PSUTV) has been creating a feature film: Karen Doesn’t Dream.
This psychological drama follows Karen, a 27 year-old porn store employee and Seaside resident. Karen’s job has always been dreary and monotonous, serving the tourists and tenants of Seaside. But that was before she found the sleep tapes… To what extent will Karen feed a growing addiction, and what will this addiction bring out of her?
Produced and created by PSU Students, the project involved over 150 volunteers and thousands of hours of work. The project started development in the Fall of 2016 and was filmed on a micro-budget from grants and crowdfunding in the Summer of 2017. Karen Doesn’t Dream will go to festivals in the Spring & Summer of 2018 and will hit local theaters in the Fall of 2018.
