one of the happiest times in life is storytime.  and not just when you read some maggie brown or maurice sendak to your son/niece/granddaughter, but also when the child comes up with a sprawling tale for you.  to get lost in imagination and see things like monkeys having a picnic on the moon is great at any age & on either side of the story.

bianca giaever does an excellent job capturing this feeling in her short film “the scared is scared.”  in it, she asks a 6-year old boy what her movie should be about and then brings his response, which includes animals at the pool & some wise beyond his years advice, to life.  via joseph gordon-levitt.

what was your favorite story as a child?  do you think it would make a good live-action film?

Great blog – consider yourself followed. Wonderful little short film – so inventive and a great idea to do something like that from the perspective of a child storyteller. Thanks a lot for posting!

thanks & welcome! i also loved the child storyteller perspective (esp how she switched details on the fly like he did).
