>>5989>I'm not sure how you would do the settings on a low budget
It would be a challenge, for sure, but green/blue screen and After Effects could get it done pretty well for such a surreal set of environments. The number of worlds and effects means each one will need a different approach to capturing their essence on video. I have some vague ideas as to how I could use a combination of practical set components and editing trickery to create some of the environments.
>Probably not feature length.
I thought this as well, though it really depends on how much story I can milk out of each world. Movie adaptations rarely treat the canon as gospel, and I could see some deviations with my own take on them being useful. For example, perhaps a short side story with the flying thing in the white desert whose name I forget every time I try to remember it, or some sort of extended interaction with Uboa.
>Don't worry about that.
I'm paranoid, but you're also probably correct. Kikiyama has essentially disowned the property and would have to come out of the shadows to come after me. I'd like to think Kikiyama would be very happy to see his work adapted into a film.
>including things from fan games that are considered canon
Given that there's already so much in Yume Nikki all by itself, I'm not inclined to cross anything over, though I know some fans would love to see X obscure character from Yume 5flowki or something in it ;-)
>no written words besides the title
Well, there'd need to be some text just like in the game, but I know what you mean and agree. ああああああああ
>How much filmmaking experience do you have?
Very little. I have two shorts under my belt, one which was hastily put together on a whim, the other is a silent B&W film that took me over a month because I had to compose a full score for the thing and had not composed any useful music ever before. I have a lot of experience with photography and some experience with various types of video.
>If you've put any films on youtube
I hadn't really thought to do that until you mentioned it. I'll post the silent film right now and link at the end of this post. It's a year old and I've learned a lot more since then, but most of the video stuff I've done isn't proper filmmaking, it's dull crap like videos for websites and product reviews that don't take a lot of effort or provide much creative satisfaction.https://youtu.be/GiJK6o0NbIc
