The gorgeous 'Prospect' trailer is a sci-fi trip into the deep jungle

New, 70 comments

Prospect is a 15-minute sci-fi short set on a "toxic" planet that utilizes custom props and costumes instead of CGI. It tells the story of a teenage girl who, while scouring the planet for a valuable resin, loses her father to a bandit attack and is forced to "grow up quick." Apparently inspired by classic sci-fi like Blade Runner and Star Wars, the Kickstarter-funded short was shot in Washington's Hoh rainforest. The full short is due to come out soon, but its creators have released a short trailer. It's high on indie sheen, retro costumes, and at the very least leaves us wanting to see more.
