I made this toon for P.O.D.'s chunky number: 'Dreaming Awake' because the original clip has no apparent link to the meaning of the lyrics and was directed purely to fit with the Matrix Reloaded visual style. I figured the kings' dreams would make great material for a cartoon, because they're so bizarre: a tree engulfing the entire world, a rock smashing a statue and becoming a mountain (and engulfing the world) and the king turning into an animal (after being mistaken for a tree and cut down at the stump).

Disclaimer: there is no subtext here to do with the current political situation in Iraq- or in Palestine, for that matter.

If you want to know what on earth's going on, its from chapters 1 to 6 of the book of Daniel.
I started this 2 years ago, so I hope it doesn't look rushed at the end. Enjoy!

Love POD and the awesome idea and animation. Could use a bit better lip syncing maybe some slightly altered mouths instead of three or four completely different ones for each character. Other than that I love your artwork style and concepts

Great.

I love it. A well composed graphical masterpiece based on the Bible and not meant to be sacrilegious to anything Judeo-Christian, that's something you'd don't see on newgrounds everyday. :) But you realize those dreams were God's sense of allegory at work, you see, they were like parables to be explained by Daniel, overall, it's Biblically accurate and it honors God, aside from being very high quality. Keep up the good work!

Amazing...

Btw, thank you for saying where all this was found in the description. I already recognized most of it. I just kinda wish my Bible wasn't missing so i could read it again. :/
