About the Author, Illustrator, Filmmaker: Sylvia Binsfeld Sylvia Binsfeld studied fine art at the Academy of Art in San Francisco with the goal of becoming an author and illustrator of children's books, but then ended up starting a career as an actress, after auditioning for a play on a dare. She joined the Screen Actors Guild. Frustrated with the scripts she was reading, Sylvia very quickly moved to the other side of the camera where she has more control over the messages she is putting out in the world.Sylvia's first solo attempt at writing, producing, and directing won her the first place Telly Award, and her company, DreamWeaver Films, was launched. Since then she has teamed with such talent as cinematographer Svetlana Cvetko, whose beautiful work has won an academy award, and platinum award winning musician Arnaldo Antunes.Because children today grow up in such a fast-paced culture and are constantly inundated with adult information, Sylvia was moved to create the award-winning short fantasy film, Dorme. Soon after she authored the book, Dorme: A Magical Dreamland Visit—which, together with the Dorme lullaby film, is the first of a DVD and book series for kids. The purpose is to bring back the innocent imagination Sylvia remembered from her own childhood, along with messages of peace and connection.
A young boy is lulled to sleep by his mother's captivating melody and we are invited to join his enchanting dreamland adventure— to that magical place we go to play when we sleep at night. We follow along during his discoveries and quest, until the stars lead us back home.The combination Dorme: A Magical Dreamland Visit picture book and visual lullaby fantasy film, which features the music of platinum album winner Arnaldo Antunes, is specially designed, with its positive messages, fun dream symbolisms to decipher and tranquil melody, to help children wind down from a busy day and transition to the quiet of the night. The calming, short musical film is wordless, encouraging a child's imagination to take flight around the imagery and allowing the child to create their own spin on the story. Dorme counteracts the negative information children are exposed to and busy pace of most people's lives. It gives a child uplifting, calming messages and visuals, encouraging positive thoughts, before drifting to sleep. The text is written in a lyrical fashion and the breathtaking images in the book match the beauty of the film. Dorme makes bedtime something delightful to look forward to…for both parent and child.

  • This Calming Short Lullaby Film & Book Set Actuall

    My kids love this book, and it's rare that I have a book I don't mind reading again & again. The short lullaby film that comes with it is breathtaking, and can act as a transition piece to calm the kids down before bedtime. Because the story has no words while you follow this little boy through dreamland, it has a way of getting my kids to wind down and get into the bedtime mode. Real positive messages too, which is nice right before bedtime.
