Hello Group,
My name is Sean Welch and I am a documentary film producer in Los Angeles.  In doing research for a possible documentary on imaginative thinkers, I was pleased to discover the Wild Minds Network.
I am writing to ask/invite members of this group if they would feel comfortable sharing with me, via email, their daydreams.  I am particularly interested in daydreaming that includes vast imaginary worlds, or world-bulding.  To be clear, I would like to begin an email dialogue with people; I am not asking for a commitment for participation in the potential project.  Please contact me if you are interested.
My first feature, the Oscar-nominated Spellbound, focused on children who compete in the National Spelling Bee.  My second documentary, Lucky, about the live of lottery winners, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and went on to air on HBO as part of their summer documentary series.
Thank you for your consideration,
Sean Welch

I think this is a great idea.  Not only is it a great and rich subject, but if more people start talking about it, then people like who do this will start to feel less crazy.  A lot of good can be done.  I've met a lot of daydreamers on this site, and they're a wildly creative bunch.  It's a unique and enriching way to live.  Opening up about your daydream worlds could be a huge relief as well.
I wish you luck, it sounds very interesting.
My daydreams aren't quite like you are wanting, they don't involve different or imaginary worlds, just imaginary situations, so I don't really think you want my input....but I am quite sure a LOT of people here could accommodate you:D

 

thanks so much for the support!

 

since i'm new at researching this topic and learning along the way, i may have been too limiting in my initial post above.  for example, i'm absolutely interested in learning more about your "imaginary situations," if you're willing to share.  thanks.

This might sound silly, but what information are you looking for? Specific questions? A questionnaire would be helpful (at least for me) I am new to this site and hesitant to really "reveal" my daydreams but I have built a crazy extremely detailed world, and strangely enough, it contains a documentary film maker...

 

It's a relief to have a name to put to this problem but it doesn't make it any less crazy or embarrassing.

hi, i don't have a list of specific questions.  rather, my hope is to learn about people's imaginations/daydreams/world-building and have the dialogue flow from there.  hope this makes sense.  your detailed world sounds interesting to me, and if you are comfortable describing it in more detail, feel free to contact me.  thanks.

I will try and come up with a brief synopsis or something in the next day or so and send it to you in a private message
great!  thanks so much.

Hello, my name is Matt, and I am one of those "world-builder" types.  I have no shame in sharing, but my issue is that the worlds I build are so vast and complex that I don't even know how to begin to explain it to anyone.  My only attempts to describe them in real life have ended in long-winded rants that have completely confused the people I was talking to.  I can write a very basic summary for you, and I can even write my process down for you.
