Carlos Aguilar and Conor Holt at One Week Only talk about the Slamdance Film Festival and DMAM at the 36 minute mark, saying: “One I’m really looking forward to… Like a Michel Gondry sort of fantasy adventure film… A handmade adventure story… A very tactile, fantasy film made of low budget, but big ideas.”
