Robert Rollins Pictures is pleased to announce the production of Robert Rollins’ anthology feature film Dream Country.
Shooting the Dream Country interstitials brings to a close a long term goal Robert has been working on for the past several years.
Dream Country was born out of Robert’s love for Rod Serling’s classic television show The Twilight Zone. Dream Country follows The Twilight Zone pattern by creating a framing device of using foot bridges that transport the viewer or journeyman from awake to asleep, from conscious to unconsciousness, from reality to fantasy, from past to present.
Cross a bridge to enter a dream….
The mysterious and enigmatic Elias introduces the featurettes while standing on a bridge much the same way Rod Serling had done in The Twilight Zone.
The “dream country” itself is not presented as a tangible plane, but rather a metaphor, for strange circumstances that befall the protagonists, thus allowing unrelated stories depicting science fiction, paranormal, time travel, dystopian, or simply disturbing events; each featurette features a surprising plot twist or ends with some sort of message.
Robert Rollins will direct and produce Dream Country in Fall 2012 and will collect his featurettes, Long After Midnight, Knightfall, Pumpkin Hollow, The Magic Hourglass and Fortune’s Fools following the filming at Yosemite National Park.
Welcome to a land that Elias calls Dream Country… A place where it is always turning late in the year. A land where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist… where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger and midnights stay. Remain as long as you like… or dare.
The trip home happens in the blink of an eye, though the journey may take considerably longer… in the Dream Country.
