Dream The Night Awake is the second film conceived, art directed and produced by 3 Deep for our client and the first that brings BPM’s 2017 campaign to life. Drawing inspiration from John Milton’s 17th century poem Comus, specifically the verse “What hath night to do with sleep?”. Dream the Night Awake is composed as a series of chapters and parallel narratives that speak to the idea that the night is far more beautiful, far more powerful and far more luxurious than the day – its protagonists more interesting and its motives more diverse.
Featuring two sets of identical twins, the film opens upon an electric Sydney rooftop with a female character dictating the tone of the evening by instructing her male counterpart to “Dance now, talk later”. Composed as a series of chapters and following a number of parallel narratives, Dream The Night Awake takes the viewer on a visceral and intriguing journey through the lives of the young protagonists. With a distinctly international cast that includes female twins, Norina and Chiara Gasteiger, male twins, Steven and Edward Bailey – in addition to cameo appearances by model Yiorgos Karavas (of Harrolds Luxury Department Store fame) and Jonathan Hallinan himself – Dream the Night Awake was brought to life by a 50 strong team under the creative direction of 3 Deep.
