    After a day to digest the awesome weekend of Dollar Babies, I can say that it go down in my mind as a very memorable weekend. Even though I watched from home, and had to pause when the kids were up during the first couple of films each day, and it kept me up past midnight both Fri and Sat night, it was still pretty worth it. I think the hosts did more than just introduce each film and director or interviewee, they hosted as much as they could as if they were in front of a live audience.

    I can't say I was a fan of every film, but there were some incredible versions of King's word put on "film" here. Even the ones that I didn't think were great, you can still give credit to the people who were part of the film as putting effort into a story that no one else has.

    It did one thing very well though, light a fire under my ass to get out Night Shift, Everything's Eventual, and all the other short story collections and reread them all.

    I feel pretty damn luck to have been able to see all those films that by default won't be viewed by many. The internet did something right this past weekend!

    It was fun to see not only the films but to hear the filmmakers discussing them. And the haikus were a hilarious impromptu addition -- I even got one about me!

    couldn't watch most of it live, but tried to capture the streams, but ran into technical difficulties on many. Especially the first half of Saturday. So sorry, I missed your interview Bev. (missed everything prior to the Doctor's Case)

    Also missed the last 2 on Sunday due to buffering issues.

    If you are able to post your interview I would be interested in seeing it. Hopefully it is not bound by the same restriction as the films in that regard.

    I still haven't had the opportunity to see most of them, but did watch a few live on Friday.

    Barker Street will be posting the interviews on their YouTube channel when they get permission and then get them trimmed out of the main feed.

    I saw most of them. Overall it was pretty good. Everything's Eventual was a full-length feature film which was fun. I Am The Door Way had some great practical effects.

    It would have been nice if there had been an option to watch the films whenever over the weekend period. Although fortunately with my time zone only the first night went really late and I was able to watch it in bed regardless.

    I think the fact that King allowed all those films to be shown on youtube at all was the nice part.

    I've been waiting for years to see some of those.

    Hopefully they'll get to do it again some time in the future. Everybody interacted nicely on the youtube chat while it was going on. So that was encouraging.

    Not saying it wasn't, it's just unfortunate some people had to stay up until 4 am in their time zone to catch certain films.

    Default Saratoga Springs filmmaker to adapt "The Monkey" (Dollar Baby)

    Sometimes it pays to play by the rules. Other times it is worth pushing against them.

    Saratoga filmmaker Spencer Sherry intended to do the former but ended up doing the latter with his latest venture; adaptation of a scary short story by Stephen King called “The Monkey”.

    During the pandemic, Sherry wrote a film script with the intention of submitting it to the King’s Dollar Baby program, in which the author grants students and aspiring filmmakers permission (for $ 1) to adapt some of her short stories. . The catch is, they can’t take advantage of their movie adaptations. Several famous directors and filmmakers, such as Frank Darabont (“The Shawshank Redemption”, “The Green Mile”) made their debuts thanks to the program.

    “I heard about this program a few years ago from a friend who did it, and I felt like one of his news was available,” Sherry said.

    It turns out that “The Monkey” was not part of the program, although Sherry only found out after writing the script. At first he decided to put it aside, but he returned to the script this year and decided to see if anything could be done with it.

    “I love my idea for that, I love the story. I’m a huge Stephen King fan, that’s how I got into that,” Sherry said.

    He reached out to King’s agent and presented his adaptation of the story.

    “[I] first asked for a real business option, ”Sherry said. This was quickly denied.

    “So I said, ‘Okay,’ I know I’m not supposed to ask and it says on the website not to ask, but could I extend the Dollar Baby contract? “… I just want to do this because I love the story.

    The next day, the contract landed in his inbox, along with a note from King’s assistant explaining how unusual it was for King to grant these rights for a story outside of the usual stories available for the program. Dollar Baby.

    According to Sherry, Darabont once had the rights to the story, but let them expire and this will be the first film adaptation of “The Monkey”.

    Could be a cool one; let's hope he resists the typical short-story-adaptation pitfall of expanding on everything.
    If you find yourself naming yourself with adjectives and prefixes, you need a more accurate noun.
