In Dreams – Short Film

For his final film thesis at UK’s Northumbria University, director/animator Samuel Blain tackled no less than the essence of our nightmares. Check out his webpage HERE

The experimental short In Dreams is based on an elegantly simple concept: Blain filmed a series of interviews in which the subjects discuss their recurring bad dreams, and then employed 3D animation to morph the interviewees into literal interpretations of what scares them.

Very much in a similar vein to the early Aardman shorts. The result is a chilling, funny and intimate examination of the images that haunt us all; narrated by surreal monster-headed beings.
