S*P: The Fan-Made Short Movie
Octobber 13, 2005
So I may not be cool enough to be involved in a
cross-webcomic World of Warcraft Guild War... or to spearhead an amazing
toy drive for children... or to have my own con with attendance in the
thousands... or have attractive women demand I sign their sexy bellies
at cons (although a very hair man once asked)... or have a large home in
the suburbs with a gorgeous
wife/girlfriend/significant other and piles of cash to roll around in,
instead of living alone in a ghetto burrow of Boston... er....
Uh, sorry about that.
But I have something that, as far as I know, no other webcartoonist can
say they've been honored with. Some of my readers made an amature film
based on Something Positive (file removed until I can get the files and
host them - we used up their host's 70gigs of bandwidth in a few hours).
It's only about 23 minutes long, and
yes, it takes liberties with some of the past stories and how they're
arranged - but it's a lot better than I could ever do. I like it. I
to tell you how completely and utterly surreal it is to know that
some people liked the comic so much that they scripted, acted out and
FILMED it. I'm feeling pretty damn flattered right now - and as anyone
who knows me personally will atest, I go out of my way to not feel
complimented. Thanks, guys! -R
