Short Film News (and it's Great!)

'Monsters Big and Small' was a flash story that originally appeared in Daily Science Fiction. Last year I was contacted by director Alex Grybauskas, who wanted to make it into a short film. Giving permission was one of the easiest things I've ever done.
Alex has been working on it over the past year, and I got to read the script and comment on it, an entirely new experience for me. After shooting and editing it's now ready for the big screen.
Even better, Alex just mailed me to say that it was named an official selection to the HollyShorts film festival, where it will make its world premiere at the famous Grauman's Chinese Theater in L.A.

I just watched it with my wife, and I thought it was great, especially the acting. I also think they did an outstanding job turning a story that has a lot of internal dialogue into a visual experience. The movie won't be online for some time, but there's a teaser trailer here.
