On the 9th and 10th of January, 11 teams set out by rail and road on the first ever DREAM:IN Journey, to travel across India; through cities, towns and villages to learn about and capture dreams of every kind of India. The teams of dreamcatchers travelled on 11 different routes on a 7 day journey covering over 25000 kilometres over the length and breadth of India, and capturing on camera people’s dreams. (Detailed route map attached, route details below).
The 101 dreamcatchers, students and young professionals from film, communication, design, architecture, management, communication etc. from 19 institutions across India like Manipal University, NID, Srishti, SPA, NIFT, Satyajit ray Film Institute etc. applied for the change to be dreamcatchers on the first ever DREAM:IN Journey. The selected dreamcatchers went through two days of intensive theoretical and practical training in Bangalore on January 8th and 9th 2011, with the unique dreamcatching method, developed by Spread Education and Consulting.
Each team of 10 had a team leader/mentor and 3 dreamcatching teams of a spotter, catcher and reader each with defines roles. The Spotter identifies the people we are looking for, based on a guideline, initiates and carries on the conversation. The Framer captures our dreamer in his context and catches moving footage. The Reader is the writer, who is concerned with catching the right words and therefore, the essence of every interaction, making each one of them meaningful. The Leader Reports mentors the team, reports on the journey and reports back to the Dream Center.
