Maria Hummer's short story, 'He Took His Skin Off For Me,' has been hailed as a modern-day, adult fairy tale. The plot centers around a couple in love. The man, however, has taken off his skin, as that's what he believes his girlfriend wants. A lot of unseen problems arise because of this. The boyfriend leaves bloody stains everywhere he goes, gets cold easily, and loses clients at work. Eventually, the couple realizes that sacrificing something so important to please the one you love can be intensely overrated.

Director Ben Aston and an incredible team of producers, SFX specialists and filmmakers are turning this short story into a spectacular film. Their Kickstarter project has already raised most of the funds, allowing them to experiment with special effects so as to create a truly realistic skinless man. When this short film is released, it is sure to garner a ton of attention from both cinema academics and the mainstream public.
