Director's Comments

Well, I'm just gonna copy paste what I said on youtube:Finally, it's out, although there probably wasn't much anticipation but I'm glad it's out now. I kind of rushed at the end, and ended up not entering it on time into the Bricksinmotion 2010 contest. Sigh... anyways please read the description on the teaser trailer I released last month. Yeah. I hope you also forgive me for some of the bad continuity and my particular failure in the voice acting field. Sorry. K'bye.

Staff Review

This film tells the tale of a boy who becomes trapped in his own dream and what happens next.  This would-be "BiM 2010: Avant-Garde" entry (finished too late to qualify) is a visually entertaining short with interesting lighting and cinematography, as well as above-average animation.  Though some annoying light-flickers do occur at times and the story is a bit rushed, it is overall a captivating short and worthy of your time.
