DREAMS SQUARED cover image
Dreams Squared is an interesting short student film that tells a confusing story through stop motion animation.

The storyline follows a character that falls asleep and dreams of blue sheep. He finds himself abducted by aliens and needs to figure out who is telling the truth about being a real human.

This film is cleverly animated using geometric shapes that create both the main character and the sets. The storyline is a bit confusing, but the subtitles help a bit. I can't say that the storyline is completely clear. As a big fan of stop motion animation, I found the execution of this film very impressive. There is clearly a lot of time allotted to creating the story with this type of tedious production. There is no background music per se, but there are lots of sound effects and voiceovers that are odd and quirky, sometimes they sound like a Greek chorus. The protagonist has a new sense of bravery at the conclusion of this film. The stop motion production is well done. This aspect is my favorite part of the film.

The message is to trust your instincts and avoid fake friends who may harm you.

I give Dreams Squared 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. I think the storyline is too confusing for younger viewers. Also, younger children are unable to read subtitles.
