The Dreamer project is experimental in a lot of ways, not the least of which is the generation of a revenue stream. For that reason, we have, as producers, decided to make this an ensemble piece. The idea is to have a production schedule that does not tie up any one actor for any extended period of time – the scenes are all short and can be easily shot in groups, freeing up cast members to live their ‘regular’ lives until the next call. The problem is that it is difficult for an audience to identify with any one character when casts are in rotation inside a story. We are expecting this to be especially true when episodes are released on the web, where brevity is a major consideration. What can an actor do in a fifty-second scene to advance his character and keep the viewer ‘bought in’ until his next appearance three weeks later?
As far as we know, these are completely new challenges, and we are wanting to explore them with you, the viewer. Again – The Dreamer is about the conversation, both on the set and off. We’re looking forward to an interesting ride…..
