Street Angel

Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca's Street Angel, about a teenage homeless girl who fights supervillains with her skateboard, is one of my favorite comics of the last few years. Like Benito Cereno, when I saw that it was being adapted as a short by film students, I was more than a little skeptical.

Here's how Rugg introduced the trailer on his livejournal:
Here's a little announcement for those Street Angel fans in the Los Angeles area. Last year, Brian and I were approached by a filmmaker, Lucas Testro, who was pursuing his masters degree from the Australian Film, Television, and Radio School. For his final project, he wanted to make a short film based on the first issue of Street Angel. Well, after some arm-twisting and wining and dining, he got his wish! Now, Street Angel, the short film, has been nominated for a Golden Reel Award for Best Sound Editing: Student Film.

There will be a free screening at the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts main dubbing stage ["Dub A"] on Friday, February 20th at 7:30 pm.

And here's the trailer.

Okay, I am sold. This is one of the rare occasions when I'm sorry I don't live in LA.
