South Beach, Florida, —Perchance to Dream, produced by Solaceskies and Film It Productions will make its world premiere on Friday March 27th,2009 at 8pm during the South Beach International Animation festival.
“Perchance to Dream” offers a new prospective in the life of Miami Seaquarium’s star performer “Lolita” She dazzles and she amazes, but what happens behind those intelligent and soulful eyes? What happens when the world’s top predator is turned into a circus clown? Animator, and Director Lauren Kimball was inspired to create “Perchance to Dream” while doing research to enhance her ability to animate animal movements. I’ve always had a love for whales; at one time I had a desire to become a trainer, but then realized that it was morally wrong. While studying whales I became aware of Lolita’s story and wanted to show how animation could benefit in raising awareness regarding Lolita, as well as helping other animal causes. This is an opportunity to present a different view on something considered socially acceptable, said Kimball. Darla Rae of Film it Productions is producer and will be distributing the animated short. Lauren worked as an intern for Film It, and has become an integral member of our production team. She is very talented, and when she showed me the piece that she was working on, I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. That’s when I made a decision to help her. As a result of her great work and approach to life I know others will get behind Lauren Kimball and “Perchance to Dream” said Rae.
