DreamLight Studio Produces Award-winning 3D Animated Short Film - BlastOff!

The Award-winning 3D Animated Short Film - BlastOff!™ is a pilot for a 3D animated web series where each night while a child sleeps in his BlastOff! Bed, his toy alien comes to life and flies through various space adventures. This 3-minute pilot webisode shows the BlastOff! Bed™ being constructed and its maiden voyage.

BlastOff! tells the story of how the worlds of reality and fantasy easily blend together in the fertile imagination of a young child, especially when supplied with creative toys and environments. The story begins at dawn with a child’s wishful drawing of a space ship. During the day his father builds him a custom designed space shuttle bed and fills his room with toys. As the sun sets, one of the child’s toys, a little green alien, comes to life and is excited pretending to pilot the space ship. As his imagination soon takes over completely, the room fades away and the shuttle bed blasts the little alien out into space for a wild rocket ship ride through the rings of Saturn. The alien finally comes crashing back to reality as the child returns home to find his room is a complete mess.
