Big Cats Don't Cry shot four scenes from the feature length script, INSOMNIA!, acting as a proof of concept. The following are film stills from the test shoot, filmed at Amoeba Music in Hollywood.


A Dazed and Confused meets Superbad, INSOMNIA! follows five unruly friends who, unexpectedly, get locked inside the world that they "hate" most: their dead-end minimum wage job at a zany record store in the heart of Hollywood.
