Quotes:

by Fede:

“After eight years of late night nights and a financial sacrifice, I share with you my personal project: Sebastian: The Slumberland Odyssey. It’s the first of its kind, genre-busting series. It’s a mind bending live action/CGI episodic tale that blends Magical Realism with Science Fiction, in an unexplored new genre: SCI-FAN (Science-Fantasy)”.

A Story inspired by true event: by Fede

“The story of those two brothers and Sebastian’s journey through Slumberland was inspired by the relationship I have with my brother. When I was young I left my hometown and i came to California to develop my artistic skills. I used to visit my family often and in one of those trips, my father told me that I was going to have a baby brother. In order to make the most of the moments we spend together I created Slumberland. It’s a world in which anything could happen. It was a place that two brothers could visit together no matter how far away they were from each other.”
