The Dream Detective –

10 03 2011

This gritty motion comic sits somewhere between the contemporary urban crime genre and the paranormal. It’s an interesting premise and the artwork and animation deftly employs many of the current techniques within the motion comic genre. Animated textual elements provide useful character information (always useful when introducing lots of characters in a limited timeframe), lighting effects enhance the overall mood and clever use of camera depth of field pulls you into distinct areas of the unfolding narrative.

*Please note this animation contains work of an ‘adult’ nature*

“The Dream Detective tells the story of Aaron Street, a three-time loser who gets one last change for redemption when he discovers he has an unusual power: the ability to see murders as they happen and track down the killers. In short order, this gets him out of jail, into a fast car and hooked up with a sexy new partner. But it all begins to go horribly wrong when Aaron comes across a killer who shares his unusual gift. The dream quickly becomes a nightmare.”
