full film:

A psychotronic, picaresque, lo-fi sci-fi romp about Francis, a sound recordist, whose special microphone picks up messages from beyond.  These sounds are stolen by a sinister underground production network, who use them to unlock latent psychic energy from the young actors they exploit.  Francis sets off on a journey to retrieve his precious sounds, only to uncover a vast network of control in which he may already be enmeshed.
