El nombre “Slumber” procede de la famosa canción de The Beatles “Golden Slumbers”. Paul McCartney en cierta ocasión hojeó al azar una colección de poemas de cuna del mismo nombre firmados por el célebre escritor británico Thomas Dekker. De ahí surgiría la inspiración para componer, en un acto de improvisación, la melodía. Tomamos la palabra slumber, ese estado entre el sueño y la vigilia, similar al despertar de una siesta estival, que nos lleva a dudar entre sueño y realidad, para simbolizar la doble búsqueda entre lo ideal y lo real.
Slumber Studio se funda en el año 2012 en pleno centro de Barcelona, un estudio con un marcado carácter español. Entre los miembros de su equipo figuran expertos en medios audiovisuales con un interés por impulsar proyectos nacionales e internacionales: un director chino graduado en una reputada academia de cine de Barcelona, fotógrafos experimentados españoles , franceses,tailandes y también nuestra entrañable gatita Muy Muy.
For the last 26 years, he has been the President of Spanish Media Group, eulam.com, and the newspapers Wah Sing and China Daily. He has worked in the media, publishing, and film and television industries for many years. He is highly regarded for his in-depth understanding of Spanish society; and his company's publishing, video channels, and portals are very popular among the Chinese community.
