I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.

    Sir Christopher Lee was not available for my student films.  Neither was Dame CGI VFX.  :^(

    But what the hell, I’ll toss in $5.  Looks like good fun.

    There was an amazing version of Hunting of the Snark with original music by Mike Batt some years ago. 

    Cast was amazing – Narrated by Sir John Gielgood and John hurt, it starred Roger Daltry, Art Garfunkel, Julian Lennon, Denise Williams and even had George Harrison and Stephane Grapelli joining the London Symphony Orchestra. Well worth checking out if you’re a Carroll fan.

  5. That’s great! The little bit at the beginning was inspired by Wes Anderson’s Amex commercial: http://youtu.be/rbO3BS0Uzm0

    And they acknowledge the inspiration by having the Amex commercial on the monitor behind the Macbook!

    In case anyone was not aware.

    Needs more acting.

    Great costuming, though.
