- [Voiceover] So in this Dreamscape, what we're gonna do is we're create this little mushroom house that we see on the screen. Now there's a lot of things going on there and this could apply to just about any fairy tale story or just some weird nightmare you might have had. But we're gonna start off with a bunch of very simple images. Now the mushroom itself, right there, I simply went down to my local produce store and shot this little picture of a mushroom. Chimney, well that's just a little shot that I took in Tuscany in Italy. That's gonna be perfect for our little chimney. A little forest, oh that's just my backyard and again with my iPhone I just shot this setting sun, giving me these nice glows on these trees.
That's gonna be our forest. This little mushroom village, again this is in my garden, there's all these little mushrooms that were growing on the other side and I decided to take a picture of them. And these are gonna serve as little lanterns. These windows are taken with a slightly more advanced camera and these is just a little building down in Peru. And I decided to take these windows that we see right here and those are gonna be perfect, nice little ornate windows for our scene. And this is a little Tuscan hillside. And that's going to serve as the overall backdrop for the entire image.
So there we see that these are the basic images, two more to go and that's a door. This is a door in a castle in Munich somewhere and that's gonna be a perfect door for our little mushroom house and the last image of course, is going to be the path. Now this is one of the many shots that I take when I'm out hiking every week. This path and the foliage around it is going to serve as the path going up to our little front door. So now let's get started and see how this all comes to life.
