Short Film Adaptation Of ‘The Nobody’ Is Far From Invisible
We’re not necessarily closer to a feature length film adaptation of Vertigo’s “The Nobody,” but in the meantime, you can enjoy a short film based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel.
For the uninitiated, “The Nobody” comes from “Essex County” and “Sweet Tooth” creator Jeff Lemire. The story centers on a bandage-wrapped and goggles-wearing invisible man (hence the title) who arrives in the isolated fishing village of Large Mouth, taking up residence in a quiet motel. Curiosity about the newest Large Mouth arrival leads to startling revelations about the stranger’s origins and the terrible accident that caused his condition.
The short film adaptation of “The Nobody,” created by Josh McCaw and Ali Borghi, is really quite impressive. The special effects are great considering the budget, while the music helps to establish the perfect mood in a way that the visual comic book medium can’t achieve. Any fan of “The Nobody” or Lemire’s work in general should definitely check this out after the jump.
