Threaded is an experimental animation which takes place in a dream that gradually turns into a nightmare. A man will go through different states of consciousness to finally reach his deepest fear. A fear caused by the loss of his son, who was taken away by a shadow being. Thus, the thread that holds this man's reality is transformed by a sinister creature who manipulates it at its own will

We began an exploration and a search for a way to reproduce dreams. How could we see, and feel something which barely remains in our heads? When we wake up there is no clear record of the dream we just experienced. What we are left with are fragments of scenarios, actions, feelings, awkward details or blurry situations that don´t have a logical narrative, yet, we tried to make it logical when trying to put the pieces together. This is exactly what we wanted the audience to go through. To be confronted by a disjointed narrative, and end up trying to make it logical just how we tried to interpret dreams.
We don´t have a right or wrong answer for that interpretation. We give people a series of elements, symbols, atmospheres, textures, colors, which give them a wide range for them to do the exercise of finding an explanation. We interrogate them, we unsettled them, we make them wonder, think, bring their own conclusions. This is “Threaded”, a dream that plays with reality and interpretation
