A student film about a Palahniuk short story

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Hey everyone,
I'm new here and I have a question I wanted to ask and I found nowhere to ask it but here. :)

I'm a film student on my second year, and for the end-of-2nd-year movie I'm planning to adapt a short story from Haunted - "Swan Song".
It's going to be a ~10 minute short, obviously made with zero budget, not as a commercial movie (doh), pretty much an inside thing. Except, maybe, I'll send it to a few festivals (if it turns out well, off course).
The question is, will there be a author rights violation? Is there a way I could ask Chuck personally for a permission, now that his fan mail is currently closed?

Many thank to who ever helps me with that one. :P
