“The story is about friendship, loyalty, and love,” said Killian. “Most children, like my son, are scared of what lurks in the dark. A stuffed bear or blanket is their reassurance that everything is going to be ok. Their Teddy Bear will protect them from the monster under the bed.”
“It was an honor to work again alongside Matt and the students on such an amazing original story. I love seeing the reaction of the audience when they watch “The Dream Catcher”. Their response is evidence that it is a tremendous story and the cast and crew really worked hard to create something genuine and heartfelt,” said Angel Gonzalez Jr. Producer and award recipient.
“Our programs are developed and taught by experienced industry professionals. From the first day they step onto the Universal Studios, Florida© backlot and into The DAVE School the students are exposed to what a working visual effects or game studio really feels like,” Says Gino Natalicchio, Ph.D. – Executive Producer and award recipient. “The DAVE School online and on campus programs consistently produce skilled graduates who are prepared for industry positions. That legacy is something we are extremely proud of.”
