Update: Bygone Behemoth

On the eve of his short film’s premiere screening at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas, over the coming weekend, Bygone Behemoth director Harry Chaskin has sent us two posters as an update. I love this one (click to enlarge):


Based on the response we’ve received to our article on Bygone Behemoth — where you can read a bit about it and check out the trailer — the film is generating a lot of interest and should go down well with the SXSW audience. I wish I could be there — though Austin, Texas, is rather a long way from Wollongong, Australia. If I had the money, it would be worth the trip, though; as it happens, Bygone Behemoth will share the festival program with another much-anticpated film featured here on the Backbrain: Monsters (UK-2010; dir. Gareth Edwards).

I love they way Stephen Chiodo — who wrote and directed Killer Klowns From Outer Space and was responsible for the SFX and creature design of films such as the Critters movies, Elf and King Cobra — described Bygone Behemoth:

“A well crafted and poignant tribute to the Golden Age of Monster Movies that inspired everything we see today. A heartfelt homage to all us dinosaurs in Hollywood.”
