George Berlin: Dream Play Create

June 4, 2020

Blue Dog Productions, Inc. and Steven Fischer announce George Berlin: Dream Play Create, a re-packaging of the EarthRise Apollo animated series by animator George Berlin.



Produced in the style of a CBS Sunday Morning segment, this short documentary spotlights animator George Berlin and his cosmic animated films EarthRise Apollo: Moonbeams, EarthRise Apollo: Lunar Toons, and EarthRise Apollo: Dreaming of the Infinite. Each animated short celebrates the child within, encouraging all of us to keep alive inside a love of imagination and exploration no matter how old we grow.
