Waking Life is a digitally enhanced American live-action rotoscoped film, directed by Richard Linklater and released in 2001. The entire film was shot using digital video and then a team of artists using computers drew stylized lines and colors over each frame. The film was Fox Searchlight Pictures’ only production using this technique.

The title is a reference to George Santayana’s maxim: “Sanity is a madness put to good uses; waking life is a dream controlled.”
