Produced in Central Florida, the 13-minute family-film combines live action, puppetry, hand drawn animation, 3D animation and virtual worlds. The film is based around characters from Algermissen's feature length screenplay The Little Dream Engine, which is currently in development, and also serves as a pilot for a prospective children's series.
