The Loch Ness Monster (US-2005; short [15 min.]; dir. Benjamin Williams)
A terrible encounter with the Loch Ness Monster haunts a woman her entire life.
This short, but ambitious-looking film stars Dee Wallace Stone (among others) and won the soundtrack composer, George Shaw, a Gold Medal for Excellence at the Park City Film Music Festival in 2006 for Outstanding Achievement in Film Music Composition for Independent Film. The following short doco about him gives us a few glimpses of the monster.
Most of the information available on this film seems to centre around the composer, even this poster, which is, in fact, the cover of a CD compilation of George Shaw’s music for independent films.

- Score available on CD here
- Director Benjamin Williams’ promotional reel

As an addendum, Kaiju Search-Robot Avery discovered this clip, which YouTube poster Roger Bottoms claims he found in his grandfather’s garden shed, with the words 1936 – “Never Screened” scrawled on the film can. He claims Reg Bottoms, a newsreel cameraman in the 1930s, took other bits of film on subjects of interest to Fortean investigators, including one on Atlantis.

Skepticism is, of course, totally warranted.
