Neil Gaiman: Dream Dangerously



“One of the finest films on creation that I’ve ever seen…One of the very best films of 2016!” – Unseen Films

Dream Dangerously offers viewers a fly-on-the-wall look at beloved fantasy author Neil Gaiman on the road, interacting with fans and experiencing the struggles and joys of being an acclaimed public speaker and in-demand personality. At the same time, the film delves deeply into Neil’s writing process, exploring the childhood origins of his love of mythology, up to his struggles to keep his writing fresh after 25 years of successful storytelling.

The film includes unique interviews with Amanda Palmer, George RR Martin, Grant Morrison, Bill Hader, Michael Sheen, Kirsten Vangsness, Lenny Henry, Will Wheaton and many more key figures in Neil’s creative and personal life. Ultimately this is a portrait of one of our most beloved fantasy writers that shows the way that fantasy can be a mirror for the world around us, and for the writer himself.

Combining tour footage with extensive interviews, the film lets Neil tell his entire life story, with the help of friends and collaborators like Bill Hader, George RR Martin, Jonathan Ross, Michael Sheen and Grant Morrison. The film follows Neil through one of the most chaotic and exciting periods of his life, and gives unprecedented access to Neil and his world.
