‘The Making of a Dream’ Episode 5: Ed’s Museum Studio

Mark interviews Ed Kang, the creator of ‘Dream Factory,’ about how he got his studio housed inside a cartoon museum.

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.

When I met Ed Kang, and decided to buy the rights to Ed’s concept, The Dream Factory, Ed’s studio was housed in the International Museum of Cartoon Art. Why he was there and how Ed, an animation student, landed space in the museum is a question I needed answered. It’s a great example of going for what you want…and getting it.
