Probably need to reduce the number of vids being posted. We are raping Youtube right now. However, this is slightly different. Over at Copydesk.com, the online vestibule of Martin Conaghan (writer of Fallen Heroes and Burke and Hare) there is this short film, made for the BBC and based on a comic book short by Martin and Mike Perkins.
Very much fulfilling the title of short it’s a very succinct gem of a short film realising a lovely idea (if a little creepy).
Little while ago Martin Conaghan, writer of Burke and Hare (graphic novel) and Fallen Heroes – on which work on Issue 3 is about to begin – asked if I’d help him out. His colleague Geoffrey D, Wessell had a short story involving a monster designed by Jacen Burrows no less to be released in the new OVERLOAD.
I know nothing about OVERLOAD – except that it’s an anthology publication (Indy) and this is the first issue so there’s an element of blind faith involved here.
However the script itself is a bit marvellous and a bona fide dream for an artist. Never get the chance to draw the whole world!!
