T aking a break from animated explainer videos, this post is a bit of a throwback to a project from 2012 when I worked on a series of animated dreams for ‘a show with Ze Frank‘… Every week ‘a show’ would feature an animated dream submitted by a viewer (they would record their voice as they described the dream and I would use it as the voice-over track).

About ‘a show’

On March 17, 2006, Frank launched the daily video program the show with zefrank. The format of the program combined commentary on media and current events with viewer contributions and activities. Each tightly edited three-to-five-minute episode combined Daily Show-style commentary on world events with songs, observations, and occasional games or challenges for his viewers to participate in. I watched the show every day with my morning coffee and loved every episode. I even appeared in one or two episodes.

On February 27, 2012, Ze Frank announced that he was going to do a thrice-weekly show, that will be “same same but different” from The Show. Similar to his other projects, Frank’s new venture would be a collaboration between him and his audience. The new show, titled “a show” was funded by a Kickstarter campaign that raised $146,752 in eleven days. It debuted on April 9, 2012 with an episode titled “An Invocation for Beginnings”. Eight months later, with the release of the “Body Karaoke” episode on November 30, 2012, “a show” and its related collaborative efforts, including “projects” and “missions” went on unannounced hiatus.
