Why Watch? Because a lot can happen when you’re asleep.
Yesterday’s short certainly borrowed from the pioneering artistic style of Georges Méliès, and they make a good double feature (considering they take under six minute to watch together). Méliès is most famous for A Trip to the Moon, but he made this ethereal short 6 years earlier, acting as director, producer, production designer, and editor.
Considering that it’s over 100 years old, it’s pretty damned entertaining – even though it probably earned a “WTF” rating even back in the 19th century. His trippy genius comes to life here in its purest form – through a dream. Now just imagine what he could do with the technology of today.
What does it cost? Just 1 minute of your time.
