A Dream of Dolls Dancing

In the dead forest, The One dreams. In his dream he hears the siren call of the dolls dancing on a far away island. He must answer their call no matter the risk. In a paper boat on a liquid sea he sails for the island where they dance. Will he find salvation or despair?

This short stop motion animated film is a narrative created using a collection of dream sequences that will be included in my feature film in progress, Seed in the Sand.
