A Magic Carpet's Dream

A couple of magic carpets face terror after realizing that everything the husband has dreamed about has come true when they wake up.

A magic carpet gets a dream about a caged parrot amid wildfire. He wakes up and tells the dream to his partner. After a few minutes, they realize that what has been a dream, has become a reality, now happening in their house. Their only way to escape the terror is to run away from the house.

This animation film will always be special to me because it is my first animation after years of learning animation skills. I was fortunate to get access to a good computer to edit this animation. The experience working on this animation film will help me with future projects in film production.
