Who would have believed it.

Not too long ago I was contacted by an amateur film-maker wanting to adapt one of my short stories in to a short movie.
When I managed to pick meself up off the floor, I said yes.
So my 4-page Zombie tale of mourning over a past life "Job Satisfaction" is in production.
Pretty bloody amazing.
I did it,originally, the old fashioned way. Pencil and ink on real paper then I stuck down the cut out speech bubbles.
I had to redraw it because he wanted a version without speech balloons, so he could create a working storyboard and it took me about 4 days to do...
Easy really just a matter of tracing it in Manga Studio.
The film maker's name is Stuart Fitzsimmons and he's created a facebook page of the delvelopment of the movie... go on the search space on Facebook and type in...
 "Job Satisfaction: The Film"
There's lots of interesting stuff to look at and amazingly there's already 238 members.
I'm still in shock that this is really happening.
