Professional skating artists Oktawia Scibior and Samory Ba created Rêverie as a result of their search for artistic concepts incorporating glide on inline rollers and visual creation. The film is based on optical illusion. Oktawia and Samory used the smooth and frictionless dance allowed by rollers and the special positioning of the camera, in order to create the impression of flight and suspension in the air. Besides multiple interpretations, the film is an invitation to detaching from daily routine. The fluidity and recurrence of mouvements, associated with a repetitive musical built-up, aim to induce a daydreaming experience for the viewer.
