About

The Emerald Dream is an ethereal, untouched realm of the planet Azeroth. Nature, dragons, and wisps, grow, gather, and gander in the Great Garden. Prince Puck, the heir of the Dream's Dreamer, is dispatched to "Brown Azeroth" in an attempt to locate the source of his shaman's maddening migraines.

“My doctor says if I dream too hard, he’ll have to ‘reconstitute’ my medications.” — Sire Jenkins

When the members of the guild < Memes For Life > aren't loitering by the Goldshire mailbox, they're questing courageously for a scrumptious scoop of nostalgia. From cotton candy to bubblegum, Silvermoon to Dalaran, no drake nor drudgery can stop their candied color rush.

My name is Bob Bohemian. I love to live through theater art. I've brought my scriptwriting to the screen to help me debut as an actor, director, and playwright. A play without a stage is an idea without a voice. While other artists may express themselves conveniently, the script comes with a burdensome birth. By incarnating my words through machinima, I aim to economically break the barrier and mount the first production of my career.

What is machinima? Machinima is a general usage term for a type of film making that uses ready–made video game assets, worlds, and characters. In World of Warcraft, machinima makers and audiences are very active due to WoW's expansive world, interactive controls, and charming emotional expressions from character models. The aesthetic ties in directly with the through line question: what is a dream? Nostalgia is best investigated on the dreamscape that inspired it. 


The spending source is very simple. The project needs dedicated animation labor. We have the tools, we have the voice talent recorded, but what we don't have is the time to block, record, edit, color, and synthesize a full length work. If the piece were 10 minutes, 30 minutes, or even 60 minutes long, we would endure. However, The Dreamers is 2.5 hours long! By funding on kickstarter, we hope to be done before the end of the century. We aim to submit our finished work within 6-9 months after a successful launch fund. The capital will be used solely to hire an animator to weave together the project.

I've been theater thinking for 9+ years. I am no fluttering dilettante; neither am I a-guy-with-a-script. Theater art is my practiced passion. Any pledge is a long term investment with the right bohemian.

Risks and challenges

The only setbacks we have are the ones that brought us the kickstarter: no money, no time. With the way schedules are maneuvering currently, we'd be able to work on the project full sail immediately granted we had the funds.
