<Woken from a Dream> is an animated VR 360 of an immersive fantastical space, designed and produced by Fée Brandt.
It uses the creator’s dreams as original inspiration and fuse into a unique dream space, with the help of Procreate, Primiere Pro, Adobe Animate softwares of painting and editing. The audience can use mobile phones, computers or VR googles with headphones to dive into this space at any time and place.
It provides the viewer with an opportunity to experience lucid dreaming. After entering this space, the audiences will not be alone. They can observe in all directions and listen to the stereo sound of the peaceful ecological environment around, matching the exquisite dynamics of the inhabitants in this space. If you observe carefully, every detail illustrates a little story in process. The development of these stories will not be interrupted by the arrival of the audience. It seems that the audience is also one of the characters similar to a birdwatcher in this ecological space. This space can calm people's frustration and pressure, and the contradicting concept of dream and reality provide an excuse for the audience to enjoy. After 1.5 minutes, the audience will return to their original world with endless aftertaste.
Also, based on the fact that many people are hunting and killing most animals on the verge of extinction, and the development of technology has also brought damage to the environment, Fee Brandt connects this virtual dream space to connect humans with nature, animals, plants, and heaven and earth, and In this way, we appeal to the younger generation to protect nature, respect the ecology, and coexist with the world. In addition, Fee Brandt also aims to create a channel connecting reality and dreams, giving viewers the opportunity to traverse to a private hidden paradise through immersive visual and audio and a sense of self-hypnosis.
