Having our hero facing constant obstacles to overcome in coma land is a great way for him to learn important lessons without being preachy while at the same time, is moving the story nicely along.

The screenplay is very visual with lots of beautiful and creative plants and payoffs. It is a meaningful and adventurous journey set in an artistic fantasy world which surely captures audiences attention - Kids because of it's visuals, adventures and a child being the main character and adults due to the Salvador Dali anecdotes and the drama. A lot of work, thought and passion was put into this screenplay by the writer - it definitely shows. Well done!

This is a story that would be equally suited to live-action or animation. It deals sensitively with a hard topic in a way that makes sense to the central characters. The dramatic highs and lows could be ramped up, but overall it's originality makes this a great film project.
