A new series I am creating for students of ESL and or literature, introducing classic stories in a short machinima movie. They will mostly consist of key scenes from the book put into movie form and will occasionally introduce the author and the process which leads to the creation of the story.

This first one is Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and contains the story of the genesis of the book and one key scene from the movie. In this case the scene of the Monsters awakening.

Delighted to say this was a Jury nominated film at Machinima Expo 6

Baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened,
The birds began to sing;
Wasn’t that an evil dish,
To set upon the king?

The king was in a panic now,
Shouting for his mummy;
…… etc.
