We had the good fortune of connecting with Dreamscape ASMR “Dream” and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dreamscape ASMR, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I think the key to success in any creative field is to completely stand out from everyone else in a particular niche. People naturally gravitate to originality and vulnerability. Blending in with the crowd and following trends is the quickest way to burn out. I have been able to push through the low moments along my journey only because I was creating content that felt natural to me. I enjoy my process so much that the views, criticism, and initial lack of success didn’t stand in my way. I love what I do so much that I would still make videos even if no one watched them. At this point, I think it’s common knowledge that it takes a lot of determination to be successful in any field, but no one ever tells you that the fuel for that determination comes from embracing your creative intuition. The path to success will look different for everyone, but in my particular case, I think my decision to not follow trends in my niche is what set me apart.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I create cinematic ASMR videos on YouTube and TikTok. For those that don’t know, ASMR is a type of content that is usually whispered or softly spoken and used to relax or fall asleep. When I first stumbled upon this type of content, I was amazed at how some sub-genres of ASMR were able to simulate a real life interaction. My goal is always to create fantasy themed short films where I am specifically interacting with the viewer as if they were a part of the scene too. There is so little fantasy themed ASMR on the market and I am so proud to be one of the few ASMR creators that specializes in this extremely niche style of content. Getting to my current level of success was extremely difficult. When I started, I had no knowledge of script writing, costume design, hair and makeup, or how to use professional grade editing software. I stayed up until five in the morning more times than I can even remember teaching myself about all the elements it would take to bring my vision to life. I still have nights where I am editing videos into the early hours of the morning in order to meet my deadlines. But my sheer love for storytelling is what helped me push past these challenges.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
One of my favorite places to go for a night out is Comedy Works in downtown Denver. That specific comedy club always has a fantastic lineup of comics and the service is exceptional! I would also highly recommend dining at Watercourse Foods. It is a fantastic Vegan restaurant. And lastly, you must check out the Denver Art Museum if you are in the area.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My family has been incredibly supportive throughout my journey and I could not have done it without them. Whether I need a quick opinion about a project I’m working on or I need emotional support, they are always there cheering me on.
