Update: Waiting For Gorgo

Waiting for Gorgo, scripted by M.J. Simpson and directed by Benjamin Craig, is a short film that draws its inspiration from the UK's best-known -- and probably best -- giant monster film Gorgo (UK-1961; dir. Eugene Lourie).

You can read about it on Undead Backbrain.

Frankly it looks excellent, even if -- as I suspect -- Gorgo herself may not appear in person. After all, Godot never turns up in Samuel Beckett's surrealist masterpiece, Waiting for Godot -- which Simpson and Craig's giant monster film is obviously referencing.

Here's the new trailer:
