Dreamworld, a place hidden inside your dreams, where you can become a hero, celebrated, liked and accepted!
The film follows a group of kids who seek acceptance and validation as they desperately try to navigate this world of social media. They are not cool and they can’t attract followers, and beacuse of this they are marginalized and bullied. Seeking to ecape this reality they use a technique of lucid dreaming to open the door of Dreamworld! It’s a world hidden in a special corner of dreams, inhabited by fantastic, magical, and strange creatures. A place where they can become heroes, celebrated, liked and accepted! Behind Dreamworld is a creature called Morpheous, the true ruler of Dreamworld. As long as there are kids inside, dreaming, his world exists. The more time kids spend inside Dreamworld and under the spell of Morpheus, the harder it becomes from them to leave. In the end they discover that the solution to their problems in real world and in Dreamworld is to accept themselves as they are.
The film focuses around the problem of cyberbullying, which is the modern version of a classic school bullying problem that was a big part of our lives growing up and going to school as serbian nationals in Croatia during the war. Today, both directors are fathers with little daughters, which again brings into focus this very real problem that can have devastating effects. We will capture the older audience with the films atmosphere, graphical quality, deep layered story and character definition. A story told through the eyes of kids, that talks about friendship and growing up in a world where you can so easily lose touch and be pushed into isolation. Its a story of finding your inner strength, forgiveness and friendship. We envision a film that has high artistic value, born from an expressive world of short animated films scene. It will be an atmospheric unique film with a lot of character and emotion.
