To generate buzz and attract attention to the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival’s upcoming flagship event, DDB New York has created a stop-motion animation video, entitled “Dream,” which captures the plight of four distinct animals suffering at the hands of humans. Set to a newly recorded version of the classic song “I Dreamed a Dream,” the emotional portrayal begins with animals in their natural habitats singing when their life was good. As the song shifts in tone, the animals continue to sing as their lives are threatened by man-made threats to their lives and environment. DDB worked with the animation production company Zombie Studio and music and sound partner Mophonics to bring this song to life.
Featuring the following guest vocalists:
· Rhino – Natalie Bergman
· Whale – Ryan Merchant
· Pelican – Keenan O’Meara
· Seal – Tal Altman
