Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters

Ransom Riggs

You may have heard about the best-selling Jane Austen mashup sensation published earlier this year, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Now Quirk Books is releasing a follow-up -- just announced today -- called Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. Lucky for me, they asked me to write and direct a promotional video for the book, which meant I got to play in a leech-filled lake with screaming actors in period costumes, create a horrifying digital creature, and try to figure out the least suspicious place to carry fake severed limbs to and from the set. Check it out!
