Dresden Files - Ed's journal
Dresden Files
So I've been reading the Dresden files, by Jim Butcher.
They're rather fun - urban, modern day -ish fantasy.

There's also a TV series, and ... well, I don't have to do much more than look at the cover to realise they've completely missed the point.

Dresden files is ... basically, a film noir, that happens to have a wizard as a detective. It could probably do with being shot as such.

Which got me to thinking - how difficult would it be to accomplish this? Taking a short story, and translating it into a 'film noir style' - voice overs, black and white, and all.
Would that be of interest to ... well, anyone really? Getting involved? Can't say it'll ever be more than a pipe dream, but ... well. Might also be cool.

The TV series is all right. Nothing special, but it's all right.

That reminds me, I need to bone up on the short stories

I recall there was a short film shot in the Student's Union by members of Film Soc in the late 90's that had a noir feel to it. I was on the periphery of it.

The challenge back then was getting the right equipment as well as the usual stuff like lighting, sound, etc. Paul Hardy, who used to be in sci-fi, still lives in Coventry and is now an accomplished writer, producer and director. Unfortunately I do not have his details but we seem to met at random intervals in the city centre.
