Flowerstream Prelude

Something unusual happens to a boy in a mechanical tree garden. His mom insists he imagined it. He'll have to decide what he believes and act on it. Both his mom and the garden assure him that if he doesn't do what each of them desires, spectacularly horrible horribleness will befall him and the world in which he lives.

Electric games. Mech flora. Scary mommy. Snog porfer. Nightmare cooking. This is just the Prelude.

Director Statement

Flowerstream Prelude is meant as a background/origin story for a series of "Flowerstream" animations. It is also an example of how we can create mundane "alternate realities" around ourselves. These realities are based on known-false beliefs we force ourselves to maintain for perceived material benefit. There's also a space melon. Don't forget the space melon.
