Father Makes Short Film For His Daughter And You Wont Believe What Happens Next....

By Kurt Dettbarn • April 6, 2015

Crazy story that's actually true…

Dad (me) makes short film (Sad Monster) for his 3 year old daughter as a birthday present and ends up winning 7 Best Film Awards including BEST FILM at Comic Con!!! as well as 18 official film festival selections, a book deal and a meeting Stan Lee!!!!!

My daughter (Maja) was growing up too fast and I wanted to capture this moment in her life before it was over. So I wrote a song for her (singing it and playing all the instruments) then designed a monster costume (which i had made by a professional makeup and FX lab) and then directed a short film featuring that song to give her on her 3rd birthday. I filmed my daughter and never told her what it was for. I also kept the entire thing a secret from my wife. They cried when i revealed it but what happened next was amazing!

If you contact me by email, I can send you some great photos with me, sad monster and lots of celebs like Stan Lee, Bruce Campbell, Billy Dee Williams, Ray Park, Norman Reedus (from walking dead), etc

Here's a link to the movie I made for (and featuring) my daughter…
