DOLLAR DEAL. THE STEPHEN KING DOLLAR BABY FILMMAKERS
Shawn S. Lealos
In 1976, Stephen King began allowing student filmmakers to create short films based on his short stories. SInce that time, over 80 filmmakers have taken Mr. King up on this offer.
Those films are know as the Dollar Baby Films, but for many people they have remained almost a myth. They can only be seen at film festivals, and many have never been seen at all.
While Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption, Green Mile) is the mos famous of the Dollar Baby Filmmakers, many more have gone on to enjoy careers in Hollywood, on television, and as novelists in their own right.
These are the Dollar Baby Filmmakers. This is their story.
