animation and dreams

November 3, 2009

machine 8 dreams

memories of dreams cannot be told in words. when telling a dream confusion always spoils a clear story flow. locations seem to change within a scene, suddenly a certain person turns to be someone else, things are happening at the same time but are experienced seperately. but dreams are having probably the deepest emotional impact on human consciousness.
to achieve a dreamlike feeling in animation, a mixture of different techniques and aesthetics is appropriate. for example a combination of photography and animated graphic elements or video footage composed with handpainted textures. so visiuals can be created which do not communicate a certain style but different emotions. animation should be used more like a language of dream than a simulation of reality.
