Dagobert's Dream

An underground comedy

Story

Dagobert is a bitter city hermit that breaks into an apartment cellar to commit suicide in peace. Poisoned and delirious, he watches a movie about 9 strangers who take shelter in a basement during a solar storm, only to find that surviving each other is their biggest problem. Can their story save Dagobert's life?

Filming

9 actors around the globe, directed online via video conference, while shooting in front of mini blue screen studios set up in their homes. The footage is edited to make it look as if they were all together, filming in one location.

Sound like a wild idea?

It is, and we're proud of it! World Cast Movie is the first in history to truly decentralize the filmmaking process, and act as a creative bridge between cultures and continents that presents an opportunity for people from all over the world to come together and collaborate on a super fun movie project.

Written and directed by Ryan James.

Dialogue recorded with the Audio-Technica AT2020USB+, proof that the power of studio sound can come in small packages.
