Throughout Sad Monster, Director Kurt Dettbarn scattered items from his own childhood as props in the bedroom scenes including a baby blanket going back 3 generations.

Director Kurt Dettbarn secretly placed an action figure of Nathan Fillion into the opening bedroom sequence as a dedication to his favorite show; Firefly. Unfortunately, the scene was later cut.

Producer/Director Kurt Dettbarn actually sang the song playing in the film. He also played all but 2 of the instruments, designed the monster and helped in the initial sculpting before subsequently directing the film.

Sad Monster initially started out as a Christmas gift for Producer/Director Kurt Dettbarn's two daughters; then 2 year old Maja and 1 year old Lillian.

The little girl in the movie (Maja Dettbarn) is the actual daughter of Producer/Director Kurt Dettbarn.

Saw this short at NXNE. It's beautifully shot, and the song makes it a good watch for anyone. But my daughter and wife especially loved it. Emotional for parents, as it portrays another moment in life we only get to watch while our kids come closer to adulthood. Well done Mr. Dettbarn. It tugs the heart strings and is one of those experiences that will make you laugh, and smile at its conclusion. An excellent little bit of acting by the young girl too. The cinematography is really well done, and clearly some talent in the post production as well. It's no wonder this has won as many festivals and been awarded as many official selections as the poster indicates. I will be recommending this to all of my friends and family.
