The intention of the tape is to create a narrative dream-like experimental work. Drawing upon popular culture (children's T.V. shows, comic books, movies and pop music), we developed a story, designed sets, shot and wrote music, within a pre-set time limit of 7 days. The story is very simple, which allowed us to improvise in an intuitive way. All sets and props were hand drawn. The story follows a generic protagonist through his visit to Mr. Dreams and a dream about Egypt.
