About Me

Joseph Scarbrough launched what he called "The Scarblog" as a way of cataloging his work over the years, as well as going into greater detail of things on his mind (known as "Unfinished Thoughts").

Five months ago, I had a thought: I always have such really odd, vivid, lucid, strange, borderline disturbing - and yes, trippy - dreams. They do tend to plague me, but at the same time, the odd thing is from time to time it's those dreams where a lot of my best ideas come from.

So it hit me -- why not explore this a little more? The next thing I knew, I was drafting a script for an experimental film I had trouble coming up with a title for a while, that would basically sum up this odd creative process I have.

That was late in September, now here it is February, and that experimental film - which eventually became titled TECHNICOLOR DREAMS - is finally here.

The whole creative process for this film was really an interesting one, because I had never really done an experimental film, but I liked the possibilities that it could bring. It was just a matter of actually putting this thing together, which itself took a while, as I had to ask a number of different people on YouTube for permission to use their videos for dream sequences, which I was able to really achieve wonderfully in Adobe Premiere. While slumbering, I am visited by a pair of dream sprites that symbolically represent how a number of my creations are born.
Of all of the projects I've done thus far, this one is by far my most personal yet.
