Since the release of INCEPTION, I have heard from some people that after viewing the film, they have had some really interesting dreams. Perhaps the creative quality of the film has kicked into our brains to dream more.
I, too, have dreamt more since seeing the film. In fact, last night, I had a dream where I was outside the house where I grew up, and I noticed that someone, or a group of persons, had broken in. I went inside the house and grabbed the phone (out of nowhere, connected, and with a dial tone) and started to dial 911, but for some reason the call wouldn’t go through.
I started to panic and got angry at the same time. I remember seeing family members in the house as I was doing this, and wasn’t a sure if they were the culprits or not. The amazing thing is that I kept waking up through the night at various times, and I would ask myself, “Why isn’t the f*cking phone working?” Then, I’d go back to sleep, and fall back into the dream instantly where I left off... gripping the phone and hitting it, trying to call 911, but still too no avail. I’m usually pretty powerful in my dreams as I’m constantly flying, levitating, jumping, etc., but for some reason, in this particular dream, I had no control, and seemed like I was being blocked from any kind of freedom.
Because of this dream, and hearing about the dreams of others recently, I would like to start this collab of writing a script based on the dreams of hitRECorders. If you’ve had a recent dream, or one that was a unique dream that you would like share, you can add them here. If doesn’t have to be written in great detail (like a paragraph or two), but if you prefer, by all means, please do so.
For the script, I will take any inspirational elements from the dreams collected here and base a short script after the events. It will be interesting to see how and where the script develops as it may have multiple, interchangeable characters, settings, dialogue. It could be a piece that takes a direction in a surreal, non-linear storyline. It will be a script that will allow hitRECorders to film (even just a scene) in either live action, or even animated. And just look at the dream REsources we have now on HR to help with that. In the end, the filmed scenes can be put together, and cut into one final film. I’m really excited about this and looking forward to reading your dreams... B.
