"Dream makers" is a tribute to the incredible craft and innovation behind films and Honda vehicles. A roller coaster ride through the creative process and the techniques involved in bringing dreams to life.
The project itself is called "The Dream Makers” and is dedicated to all those who bring films to life. The story takes us from first inception of the words of a screenplay, through the myriad processes of film making before bringing everything together in a final cinematic moment.
We developed four distinct filmic stories with the agency, each featuring a Honda vehicle as a fellow cast member.
We built an edit that allowed us to bring all of the separate stories together, which also allowed us to add another level of storytelling. We were able to deconstruct the final hero moments of each scenario and return us back to the page of the screenplay. Here a new line from the script launches us off into another film scene.
The film pays homage to the "creators" and we looked to a whole raft of artists to bring this film to life: Illustrators, concept, Afterfx, Flame, CG, Animtors, Compers, Nuke, Matte painters, Photographers, Designers.
