Sci-Fi Short 'Prospect' Tells Coming Of Age Story On An Alien Planet
If there is one thing that Zeek Earl and Chris Caldwell's sci-fi short, Prospect, teaches us, it's that growing up 'aint easy, especially if you're on an alien planet. Prospect tells the coming of story of a teenage girl who spends her days looking for a precious substance on a hostile alien world. The girl's father is the mastermind behind a project that he hopes will see his family strike it lucky in what appears to be a form of science fiction gold rush. But of course, no gold rush is complete without a bit of violent competition, and soon the pair find their peaceful life disturbed by an opportunistic competitor. With all of the father's worst nightmares coming to fruition, the young girl is forced to do a great deal of growing up, in a very short amount of time.
Prospect, which was produced by Shepfilms, premiered at this year's South by SouthWest Film Festival.
