DREAMSTATES is a collaborative animated video series created by creative agency Option-G for Sundance Channel. In the series, notable names from the worlds of music and film recall some of their most stirring dream stories, which are then brought to life in varying styles by five talented and unique animators. The first season of DREAMSTATES includes interviews with musicians Questlove (The Roots) and Mike Gordon (Phish), actor/comedian Will Forte (Saturday Night Live), actress Malin Akerman (Watchmen, Couples Retreat) and writer/documentarian Sebastian Junger (The Perfect Storm/Restrepo). The dreams recounted by the interview subjects range from being chased by a giant puffin to being tasked with writing a new theme to Soul Train. Animation for each episode was created by the following - Questlove (Nessim Higson/Jerry Liu/Aaron Barker), Mike Gordon (animation by Bran Dougherty-Johnson), Will Forte (animation by James Braithwaite and Darren Pasemko), Malin Akerman (animation by //kneeon), Sebastian Junger (animation by Cole Gerst).
