A student film about a Palahniuk short story
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.
