One of the things that I've wanted to do for a while is to have a "film festival" of sorts, or a contest or a workshop kind of thing, where the submissions are less-than-ten-minute shorts with no dialogue. The whole concept behind this is more as an exercise in visual storytelling than anything, though there's also a challenge in writing a self-contained piece that lasts less than ten minutes.

Last night's bout at the Cinema Lounge brought that up again, and through some bizarre dreamtime connection, I realized that one of the brain-kernels of a horror film idea fits perfectly into this. I just have to massage the ending a little, and I'm in.

It means I have to make a few more corpses.

Maybe it's because the start of fall sends me into the full-on Halloween season, but I am so in the mood to make a horror film it's scary. No way I can cut one this year, there's just too much going on.

Have to make corpses? We all know you want to make them!

A horror short would be very cool!

Well, I'd need three for this particular piece. And what I'd really like to do is puppet them for a couple of the shots.

That sounds like an excellent idea. I love shorts, and visual storytelling is just fabulous in comics and I adore seeing it in film.

I'm getting excited about Halloween, too.
