The article features writer-director Jason Winer, which developed a series of "Giant" with an off-beat, low-budget pilot that contained a mix of scripted and improvised dialogue. Winer caught the attention of Century Fox TV when he shot the short film titled "The Adventures of Big Handsome Guy and His Little Friend" for $20,000. Winer noted that he learned a lot from the "Giants" experience and will probably cast some bigger names the next time around.
