A year ago, John decided to go back to school to pursue his dream -- becoming a 3D animator and a director of animated films. Last semester he took a class called Cinematographic Storytelling. His final project was to make a short silent film. He decided to create a film adaptation of one of our short stories, Why We Cry. You can download Why We Cry free if you'd like to read the story.
John asked our friends Sandra Szendrey and her daughter Aysha to play the roles of mother and daughter. I'm glad we did because they did a terrific job. Here's the silent movie -- with the addition of a soundtrack on harmonica by Frank Miller and a few key lines of voiceover.
Let us know what you think. Oh...and the best thing. We had so much fun making the movie and seeing the story come to life that we've decided to make another one. We are in the early stages of a movie adaptation of our short story, The Bar. It's published in Mind of a Mad Man, which is available at Smashwords and on Amazon.
