Jimmie Buchanan Jr.,
Created by Austin-based couple Amy McCullough and Jimmie Buchanan Jr., the surreal allegorical comedy Work Dreams finds ToyCo. new hire Hank Dobson (Dan Hunt) settling into his conveyor-belt job at the Galveston factory that manufactures a polymer used in every toy product. But when he notices odd things happening inside and outside the factory, Hank begins to question whether his ToyCo. bosses are up to no good. Work Dream also stars Jimmie Buchanan Jr. as beach musician and conspiracy theorist Jomar; Amy McCullough as Loretta, a ToyCo. worker who disappears under mysterious circumstances; and Austin author Dale Bridges as Terrance, ToyCo. hatchet man. Work Dreams screens at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 8 at the AFS Cinema.
