play the trailer

The Guide comes with a DVD featuring The Last Birthday Card, a short film I directed in 1999.

Birthday Card is the first original Orphanage production, and the first public appearance of Magic Bullet.

The 20-minute short, which played at numerous festivals and on iFilm, is presented on the DVD along with a commentary track and visual effects breakdown. The many effects in the film are used as examples throughout the book.
