Great Awesome News

Well, the script is in my inbox, so it must be true...

I've been contacted by a film director, who wants to make one of my stories into a short movie.

Excuse me while I freak out!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The story is called 'Monsters Big and Small' and was published by Daily Science Fiction last May. Alex, the director, read it online and contacted me with the idea about a week and a half ago, and of course I said yes. Now he's worked out a script draft which I'm reading right now. I don't know the first thing about scriptwriting, but I'll help out with the story and ideas any way I can. Anyway, Alex seems to have the script bit covered, and from the clips I've seen of his first movie, he knows how to tell a story on the screen.

I can't say how thrilled I am to have this happen, to have someone read a story I wrote -- a flash story at that -- and love it enough that they want to make a movie from it. I really can't.

Tillykke, Jakob! It's nice to see talent recognized!

I hope there will be a way for us to see it when it's done...?

Mange tak :-)

I don't know how the film will be distributed. I think Alex wants to take it to as many short film festivals as possible, but apart from that... I'll let you know when I know more.
