Dreamscape - NCAD╳RIAM | 2019


Short animation based of a piece of music by Costanza Corcoran. As per the brief it is a 90 second animation. I was inspired by the beat at the beginning of the piece and the whoosh at the end to center it around a train journey. The premise is that our character falls asleep on a train ride and dreams. She wanders through her dreamscape, exploring, until she meets a dark entity, representing a nightmare creeping into the dream. She then finds a light which allows her to wake up and escape this. In the end we see her back on the train, arriving safely home.
