A new short film is making its way around the ‘net titled Imagination that’s sure to hit many of you right in the ol’ nostalgia button as it is overflowing with geeky goodness.
Playing more like a music video, Imagination is a very cool mixture of filming techniques including stop-motion and time-lapse set to a cover of the song “Pure Imagination” sung by the great Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

As children, we viewed the world through the lenses of our imaginations. The carpet became lava, the shadows formed monsters, the family minivan was a spaceship. But the older we got, the more reality set in, and soon we forgot the magic our minds could create. We invite you to step back into your childhood and take a look through the lens once again. PermaGrin Films presents “Imagination” as part of the Dream Music series.
Imagination is directed by Marc Donahue and produced by Roth Rind through their PermaGrin Films. Here’s a description of their goal:
PermaGrin Films stands for something much bigger than creating a perspective that provokes thought and encites awe. Marc Donahue, founder and key cinematographer of PermaGrin Films, started this company with a mission in mind:
“The best parts of life pass us by so fast. Nostalgia, happiness, laughter; these are all things I most enjoy and I want other people to experience this through the content we create.”
With the support of an amazing production team led by his manager and producer, Roth Rind, PermaGrin Films can meet and surpass the need of any project with up to 6K resolution solutions, motion controlled time-lapse, GoPro Arrays, and more.
