‘Dream Factory’ includes various styles of animation. Is that good? It depends on the idea.
In 1999, I optioned the rights to an unreleased comic book called Dream Factory and have been on a quest ever since to get it produced as a movie or TV series. In this blog I share with you the history, the near hits and the actual production notes as I finally move into production. #Thisismydream.
In our project Dream Factory, lots of action takes place in the dreams of different characters. I always thought it would be a cool idea to have each dream animated in a different style. My dreams all look different. Why shouldn’t the representation of dreams all look different?
In this episode, I talk about my reasoning behind mixing animation styles in this project and other times it’s been done successfully.
