I submitted this to Boing Boing after first seeing it at the great SF site io9.com.
The Newbery is the most prestigious prize in children’s literature; “90-Second Newbery” is a competition to abridge a wonderful kids’ book into a 90-second video. Here’s the entry for Madeline L’Engle’s classic “A Wrinkle in Time.” Great work!
I got a thanks from Cory Doctorow for my submission (Thanks, Spocko, via Submitterator!) So I want to thank Annalee Newitz at io9 for first bringing it to my attention.
It is so nice to see joy in films. I love the credit sequence with the kids dancing to Telstar. I think that L’Engle herself would enjoy this, and hopefully she would approve of the line reading that I adored in this film.
