dream(drēm)n is the story of a lonely blackbird who seems to have a bad time of it either awake or asleep.  When it is awake it lives in a drab grey world where birds are persecuted and it is unable or unwilling to help. When it is asleep it sees events presaging its own death.

Is there any way out for our little blackbird?

You will have to watch to find out! This is Mary Lai’s second year film at UCLA. It was created with hand drawn layout and keys on paper, then animated in TVPaint.  The music score by Joe Trapanese.
