DREAM MUSIC: PART II

Created By: Marc Donahue & Sean Michael Williams  

Produced By: Gus Winkelman

Dream Music: Part II is a musical voyage into the depths of the subconscious. This lyrical narrative reflects on the perception of time within dreams and waking life. Filmed on location in 2 states over the course of 6 months, we explored our new production technique of what we call ‘lyric-lapsing’, to achieve the surrealistic feeling of movement. We built upon the foundation of Part 1 with ambitious ideas that usually took around 6-8 hours of shooting for 3-4 seconds of footage. Our goal was to pioneer a new film genre by telling a story through art and music. Part 2 was made to transport the viewer from their own reality into a world of dreams and at the end, they awake to wonder how we were able to take them there. Each scene was born from the symbolic meaning of the lyrics and overall message of the film; Time is the illusion within the dream of life.

Slightly Stoopid Live in Santa Cruz, CA

Slightly Stoopid is an American band based in Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, who describe their music as a fusion of folk, rock, reggae and blues with hip-hop, funk, metal and punk.  This video was shot in collaboration with GoPro and utilizes various angles ranging from DSLR's to GoPro Hero 3's.  A Huge thanks to the GoPro team for supplying multiple cameras and mounts ready for use during the shoot!  Before the show started Sean ( SMW Films ) and I were scouting the venue for the best angles and eventually met the entire band including the brass section.  It was a great experience working with Slightly Stoopid ( managed by Silverback Music & Management ) shooting for 4 hours flew by and that can be attributed to the Security Team of The Catalyst and how organized and well maintained that venue is.
