Hi all,

Episode 5 of Waking Dream has dropped--check it out HERE! 

Ep5 is a bit of a tear-jerker, with emotional scenes of both happiness and sadness. My mom is still waiting for me to make a comedy and stop making films that make people cry--sorry Mom!

In this episode, Rossy defends her dissertation as her future dreams of being a professor hang in the balance, John Sena prepares to ship off to Basic Training to have his life changed forever, and Marisol contemplates her future for her family in the U.S.

Remember to Text 'WDREAM' to 474747 to get updates with links to each episode as they roll out.

Waking Dream goes on an (unintentional) roadshow!

The Waking Dream Team has been intentionally not focusing on screenings right now--saving that work for early 2019 as we build out digital engagement on our social channels, as well as building relationships with strategic partners.  BUT, we are seeing a lot of demand for the series from conferences, community groups, schools, Mayor's offices, and more!  So, here's a few pics from screenings just over the past 10 days...
