Have you ever tried freewriting? Just taking a pen to paper and allowing your mind to run wild?

That's what Sofie Lee discovered when she crafted a new poem: Dream.
This is an exclusive look at one of the lessons learned in our Workshop "Directing Your Dream", featuring the flowing animations of Sofie Lee.

This is just a sneak peek at some of the amazing lessons Sofie has in store, so grab your notepad, a fancy pen, and get ready to unleash your creativity. It's time to dream big.
Directing Your Dream
Dream is a stunning visual poem that was written, directed, and designed by Sofie Lee. This film represents the power and effectiveness of using abstraction, visual metaphor, and design to create an unexpected world, convey an emotion, and tell a story. In this Workshop, we explore Sophie's background and experiences, her inspiration behind writing this poem, and later how she translated that into the final storyboards, designs, and direction for this beautiful self-initiated film.
