Cool Videos: Sandman fan-film that got Neil Gaiman's seal of approval

I've been catching up on the SANDMAN comics recently, and have fallen madly, deeply in love with them. But I'm not surprised, as I've loved author Neil Gaiman's other works, such as AMERICAN GODS, STARDUST, NEVERWHERE, and even his MARVEL 1602 series. Not only that, but his adapted works - such as those of the aforementioned AMERICAN GODS and STARDUST - were also great as well. And Hollywood has been trying to get this story to the screen for decades, most recently with Joseph-Gordon Levitt as the writer, director, and star (though that fell apart when he refused to have Sandman throw a punch).

Anyway two Toronto-based film directors - Nicholas Brown and Evan Henderson - have done what Hollywood could not: make a damn SANDMAN movie. Or at least a short film, based on SANDMAN Issue #6: "24 HOURS". Even Neil Gaiman himself is apparently a fan:

Anyway, here's the short itself (for as long as it lasts), so you can see for yourself:

Meanwhile, any other SANDMAN fans out there? If so, do you Schmoes down for a live-action SANDMAN series? Either way, sound off below!

Extra Tidbit: After AMERICAN GODS, I am definitely thinking TV or streaming might be better suited for SANDMAN than a feature-film.
