Spike Jonze and Max Records' Short Film 'Vampire Attack'

October 8, 2009

Vampire Attack

I promised I wouldn't share any more footage from Where the Wild Things Are, but then I came across this! I've seen the movie already and it's wonderful, thanks especially to Max Records' performance as the kid in it. I don't know where this came from, but it's a little behind-the-scenes video showing director Spike Jonze and Max Records making a 30-second short film called Vampire Attack. Yea it's funky and fun, but that's exactly the kind of spirit that made this movie so amazing. Other examples of this kind of brilliance can be found in the book they're putting out - I took some photos here and here. Anyway, check this out!

If you haven't seen them yet, please watch the newest trailer and the wonderful featurette from Comic-Con.

Where the Wild Things Are is directed by visionary filmmaker Spike Jonze, of great films like Being John Malkovich and Adaptation previously as well as numerous famous music videos as well. The screenplay was co-written by Spike Jonze and author Dave Eggers, a former editor who also wrote Sam Mendes' Away We Go from this year. This is based on Maurice Sendak's beloved children's book of the same name. Warner Brothers will finally bringing Where the Wild Things Are to theaters everywhere in October 16th.
