Dreamlake is a reflection on the human constructed lakes that feature heavily as meeting places in regional towns and may represent the inland desire to be closer to the sea!
Dreamlake finally is a view of dams and lakes as resting places for everyday dreams from the past and present.
Dreamlake is an experimental, digitally animated film which attempts to work within a consistent pattern of discontinuity or dreamlike logic. Dreamlake contains an abstraction of narrative and the foregrounding of audio visual and kinetic spectacle. An e-scape into an electronic sound and video scape , a surrealistic ballet of sound and images. This is a short film with many parallels to such seemingly diverse forms as classical ballet, action/adventure films and music video.
Incorporating adaptation and digital animation of the fantastic bricolage Scultpure work by Graham Mathews as well as photos taken in Bendigo in the 1940s
by Erskine Eadie, a plumber, inventor and photographer.
