Short films and productions created by fans. These films are of varying quality and none are technically professional works, several were created as projects for College/University work.
Mort is a short stop motion animation based on the book of the same name, by Orange Cow Productions, produced by Garrett Gilchrist. The film was created as a student project and the rights to the film are held by the University of Southern California. The plot covers the majority of the novel but the ending was rushed. An extended version was released on DVD using footage that was filmed but cut for time restrictions. (26 mins)
Wow! So you made a kind of movie of my book without asking me and now some damn university thinks they own all the rights to it? Really? Sounds like a great day in court!
It sounds like fun, but even so, I don't want to see it. You'll probably look back on it in years to come and wish you hadn't shown me. Let it remains to glitter unseen. -Terry Pratchett
