Short Film: "The Long Silence After"

I ran across a film adaptation of a an Ed Gorman short story: "The Long Silence After". I haven't read the short story and I'm not sure if it has been collected and if so where it was collected. I checked the few Ed Gorman collections I have with no luck.

The film is good. I read on Gorman's blog it was produced by film students. It runs about eight minutes and it's a diversion well worth the time.

Thanks for the kind words on the film. I was the DP and we're all very happy about how it turned out. We're premiering on March 9.

Terry: Thanks for the information. I really have a good time with the short work of Ed Gorman. His novels are pretty great too. I need to bite the bullet and lay down the money for the Collected editions published by PS.

Andre: I really enjoyed the film and I'm glad that it's based on an Ed Gorman story. I think Hollywood should take a closer look at some of the high quality plots and stories being produced by genre writers and do something with them. Just think, a Nameless detective television series, or maybe Sam McCain in living Technicolor.
