As Dreams Are Made On is a short film, written and directed by Gabriel Reid.

Ian Hughes plays Reuben Mills, a talented but impoverished actor feeling much pressure to nest. With his acting company about to tour he finds himself at an emotional crossroads. The time has come to choose his path.

Gabriel Reid was inspired to undertake this project after researching an M.A. thesis examining film adaptations of Shakespeare. His research interviewees included John Barton, Hugh Cruttwell, Adrian Noble, Trevor Nunn, David Parfitt and Imogen Stubbs.

The film's title is derived from lines uttered by the magician Prospero, in Act IV, Scene I, of Shakespeare's play The Tempest:

Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd tow'rs, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
