The source material comes from the short horror story "Der Sandmann", written by E. T. A. Hoffmann (best known for writing the novella "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King", on which the famous Tchaikovsky ballet is based.) In it the protagonist has an aside conversation with an old woman, who relates details about the "real" Sandman's nature and habits that diverge sharply (and ghoulishly) from the character as he is traditionally depicted in European folklore. Her description of the Sandman appears as the antagonist in this animated short. See more »
at my school we were doing studies on the sandman and i wondered what it is because i never heard of it before. My teachers said it was an animation and i thought it was going to be a sweet, innocent film, BUT...... until i watched it i was shocked i thought to myself animations aren't meant to be like this! what freaked me out was the Gothic presentation the way he moved, the way the music was played in it all squeaky and high pitched like a crow squawking. but overall i think the way they made it was rather interesting the shape of the sandman's head like a moon, the way he moved everything! all i say is u should see it but if you get nightmares easily don't bother going and seeing it!
