Somewhere In Dreamland (1936) Max Fleischer's Color Classic Animation

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Somewhere in Dreamland was a 1936 film based on the titular song. 
This film was part of Max Fleischer's Color Classics series.

A young brother and sister carry a wagon with pieces of wood, gathering them for their stove. They pass by three merchants' shops: a tinker's, a butcher's, and a baker's. The children see confectioneries at the window, trying to lick it to taste them. The friendly baker comes out with cupcakes, but they already left. The children reach home, and they are welcomed by their mother (Olive Oyl), with a kiss. Then, they eat dinner: hard bread and flat water. The children eat quickly, with the boy saying "I'm still hungry, Ma." She then cries, because they are very poor, due to the Great Depression. The boy tries to make her feel better by assuring her that he was "only foolin'" and their mother kisses them good night. They get in their pajamas, and they each sing a part of the song, as they fall asleep beneath their very tattered sheets. She turns off the candle light, and goes to bed so sadly.

In their sleep, they enter a land with a welcome sign, an arch of pillows with the word "Dreamland". They walk happily through the wondrous land, which includes an ice cream cone field, an animal cracker carousel, a field of popcorn-making corn stalks, wonderful toys, and two luxurious beds. They laugh happily, and fall asleep, only to wake up the next morning. To their surprise, a large feast is on the kitchen table, provided by the Merchants. They ask, "All for us?" The merchants say, "All for you." They shout in joy, but the boy sticks a fork on his bottom, to check if they weren't dreaming again. The children then laugh as a chorus sings "Somewhere in Dreamland, tonight."

Unlike most Color Classics, which were produced in two-strip Technicolor, with the exception of Poor Cinderella (1934) which was filmed in Cinecolor, this was Fleischer Studios' first film in three-strip Technicolor.

Somewhere in Dreamland is very typical of the style of Dave Fleischer--two angelic kewpie-like children live in terrible poverty but dream of a world of limitless candy and toys. In spite of the overly cute premise and the fact that these children are interchangeable with the children in every other Fleischer cartoon, Somewhere in Dreamland is an adorable film, which excellent animation, especially in the dream sequence. For such an early cartoon, the level of detail is quite impressive--when the kids go to bed, both their pajamas and their blankets are shabby and ridden with holes. It's a shame that cartoons like this are no longer very popular--it's hard for kids today to relate to a cartoon where every body behaves incredibly saintly, and the only villain they have to face is the ever-looming Depression. But Somewhere in Dreamland is a lovely gem that remains a tribute to the inspiring optimism of the 1930's.

They were the work of geniuses like Chris Evans, Mike Pangrazio, Frank Ordaz, Harrison Ellenshaw, and Ralph McQuarrie.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

The Passion Competition was born in 2007.  Initially it was a just for fun type thing.  In 2009 we started offering cash prizes.  2010 saw corporate sponsors like Reallusion, Sony Software and Moviestorm offer their software as prizes,  This brought in additional entries but not to the level we expected.  2015 saw the addition of small cash prizes on top of the software.

 

To help the competition grow we would like to offer higher cash prizes ($250, $500, etc.) to supplement the software but due to a limited financial situation prizes larger than $50 are not obtainable without help.

 

The money raised here will go mainly to the prize chest but some of it will be used to help advertise the competition on various sites.  We have paid artists to create videos ads in the past (this came as out of pocket money) and would like to continue doing so.  All monies raised will be used strictly for the competition and none will go for personal use.

On a saturday night if im not out with friends, I will lay back and watch a disney movie or my personal favourites Star Wars, Harry Potter or Indiana Jones ( Kingdom of the Crystal Skull). Movies have always been an interest to me with their visual/CGI effects that are used. I enjoy watching a movie that feature some of my favourite actors or actresses, Harrision Ford, Danielle Radcliff, Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush are a few of my personal favuorites.
