The concept is to show the journey of a little girl traveling through a dream, where she is faced with her greatest fears and traumas. Her mind distorts the reality around her where she must stand up to overcome her fears. The main objective of the story is to show a curing process for these fears and traumas, by exploring the future possibilities of artificially induced sleep and hypno-therapy.

Initial storyboard sketches, depicting the story of a girl overcome with fear after she enters the elevator. Then after the fear has completely consumed her, we see that she is actually on a medical table, trying to overcome her fear of elevators through the process of hypno-therapy.
The concept references were derived from studies of the human brain, sci-fi interpretations of humans in sleep, and images that induce fear such as claustrophobia It was also important at this time to explore how fear was going to be personified since the main component of this piece is about overcoming past trauma.
