This column is about a fictional interview I had in a dream last night. When you live and breathe super hero movie news and updates like I do, this can happen from time-to-time. Although this time it was so vivid I remembered all of it clearly. So I thought to share this with my readers.
Early this morning I woke up excited. Excited because I just had one of the most vivid dreams I've had in a very long time. It felt so real the reason I woke up was because in my dream I told myself that I needed to hurry up and get to my MacBook so I could write and publish my awesome interview that had just happened.
The fictional interview was with Ant-Man director Peyton Reed, who for some reason I had given him a similar personality of actor Jim Rash's portrayal of Dean Pelton in the television series Community. I'm a big fan of the series so perhaps it was the similarly shaved head and glasses look of the director and actor. I hope that doesn't make me 'baldist' or 'glassesist' or both. Haha. Anyway, this is what I recall from my dream.
It started with meeting Reed in an all-white room. We went through our quick intros and then Reed led me over to an all-white door in the all-white room and opened the door for me. We then went into a normal looking studio room where the film's composer was already hard at work on creating music for the Marvel Studios movie.
In front of the composer was a monitor and on that monitor I could see it was paused on an image of a street scene from the San Francisco shoot earlier this week. I could not see the composer's face, which can be typical in some of my dreams. He was a faceless person and I apologize to the actual Ant-Man composer for this.
Reed instructed the composer to play me a clip of what he was working on and it was an electronica-like mix with underlying dark, ominous tones to it. When the sound clip ended, Reed asked me what I thought of the music sample.
I said, "It's very dreary." Reed said, "Fantastic! That's what we're looking to accomplish for this scene."
Reed then went on to tell me some tidbits about that scene he shot in San Francisco without revealing anything specific. Sadly, I cannot recall those details in that part of my dream probably because I saw some concept art on one of the walls and was focused on trying to make out what it was... I couldn't.
Then, I asked a few questions to try and 'fish out' some details about Ant-Man but Reed wouldn't bite on my attempts. He did tell me that I could use everything I heard and was told for an exclusive interview post on my (this) website.
After Reed told me that I must have gotten really excited in my dream because the last thing I remember is walking toward the door to exit the studio room, thinking how great the interview will be for my (this) website but then suddenly waking up. When I woke from this dream, I was sad to realize that it was just a dream. I figured I should at least share this dream with my readers because of how real it was for me.
Or... maybe, just maybe this was one of those moments that will create some deja vu for me because I just used a part of my brain that allows me to see into the future. It wouldn't be the first time this kind of thing has happened to me and I'm sure it's happened to many of my readers before as well.
I hope you enjoy this fictional retelling of my dream and hopefully Peyton Reed will come across it and read it as well... and not be too creeped out by it. :)
