I've got a fantastic animated horror short for you to watch today called "Francis." It's a spooky campfire story that was written and read by Dave Eggers on the radio program This American Life. You can now you can watch the story of a girl's eerie experience on a boat on a lake late at night. This is such a great story, and I'm sure you'll all enjoy.
Richard Hickey directed this adaptation. Here's some more information that came along with the short from Not To Scale.
The story of ‘Francis’ came about interestingly from famed radio show 'This American Life'. Broadcaster Ira Glass asked 6 American writers to create a short story about Adventure. One of these stories written by novelist & screenwriter Dave Eggars, it was read on the show to much acclaim and praise. Richard worked with producer Kevin Batten & a team to turn the words into this short. He worked on the film tirelessly & had 40 people work on all elements of the animation. The film has been shown at Cannes Film Festival and Raindance.
