The main purpose of this thesis is to experiment, investigate and incorporate different vehicles of visual communications, making them work together. The challenge is to work with the digital video medium, to create a video using the appropriate computer equipment and combining visual and sound effects which will complement and work to get her. The sound is going to be manipulated in such a way that will reflect and enhance the 2D visual imagery. This imagery will also be manipulated and animated using computer software in order to convey a message. Once the sound and the imagery are finalized, they will be assembled into a QuickTime movie and transferred into a VHS tape. The final movie will be a looped version transferred to a VHS tape that will run through the length of the show. The purpose is to place a viewer into an isolated situation, into a dream-like envi ronment, which will stimulate his/her auditory and visual senses. The topic chosen for the video resulted from the inspiration of dream imagery and symbolism. The goal will be to convert virtual dream images into a surreal dream like visual reality.
