Kim Newman's "Missing Girl"
Kim Newman sends word that his short film, "Missing Girl", is now available for viewing on his website.
In May, 2001, the Studio – a UK cable channel which isn't around any more – set three film reviewers a challenge, to make a short film lasting precisely one hundred seconds, taking it from conception to completion inside twenty-four hours. The idea began with the Studio's Italian counterpart, which is why the overall term for these films is millimetraggi. A couple of dozen of the things were made all over the world (mostly not with the inside-a-day condition) and showed up in the interstices of the Studio’s programming.And a creepy little one hundred seconds it is, too. Well recommended, if only to see Stephen Jones skulking around, looking menacing.
