Here There Be Tygers is a short story written by Stephen King, published in 1985 in Skeleton Crew.
Starting around 1977 or so student filmmakers began contacting Stephen King regarding his short stories. "Could we make a short film based off your work?" - they asked. Because he had been so fortunate with his early novels like Carrie, Salem's Lot, The Shining, and the Stand King was gracious enough to allow these few filmmakers the PERMISSION, to use one of his short stories for the cost of a $1.00.
That tradition has continued to this day 2019 some forty plus years later.
This podcast is a candid conversation with film director/producer Bryan Higby and actor David Wilder regarding their filming of the short movie: Here There Be Tygers. Higby was granted permission from Stephen King on November 2nd, 2018 and finished principle photography in March 2019.
