This is an AMV that I started a little after christmas 2007 and finished mid-February 2008. I got the movie Paprika for christmas and I wanted to make an AMV. So I got to work and went over it a bunch of times and thought "Hey, maybe I should enter this in the AMV contest at anime boston". So I did...about three days before the due date sending it next day shipping. At 11:30pm I got an e-mail about a week or so later and it said that I was a finalist and I screamed for about an hour and my mom joined in about ten minutes in. So even though it didn't win anything, just being in the finals and having it shown to thousands of people was enough for me! So I'm posting this for anyone who say it at Anime Boston and wants to see it again or for anyone else who is interested. Enjoy!
If you have never seen the movie Paprika, it basically revolves around the idea of sharing dreams for therapeutic purposes, but the device used to do this is stolen and then the real world and dream world begin to combine. I wanted to use the song "Dream a Dream" for obvious reasons, but it has come to my attention that it is not clear that the movie is about dreams from the music video. So I hope my one sentence synopsis helped anyone who had never seen the movie before. I do suggest it to anyone that is 17+. The english dubbing is really well done.
By the way, the name I used for the ballot at Anime Boston was Wiz because that was the badge name I used.
