Roberto Bolano Zombie Story Animated by Granta

Granta has released an animated version of an imaginary horror movie mentioned in Roberto Bolano‘s story, “The Colonel’s Son.” The story itself was published in Granta’s Horror issue.

Here’s more about the short: “the narrator recounts a B-grade horror flick he sees on late night TV. A girl gets bitten by a zombie; the boy he loves tries to save her; the father of the boy, in turn, tries to save him. Bloodshed spreads across the city, as one by one witnesses become victims . . . and then killers … Nothingbutamovie.com is an HTML5-based animation inspired by Bolaño’s piece, and has been brought to life by Granta illustrator Owen Freeman and the innovative web designers at Jocabola.”

The designers also worked on Arcade Fire’s interactive music video, “The Wilderness Downtown.” If you want to learn more about HTML5 storytelling tools for writers, check out our Publishing App Expo on December 7-8.
