Prospect Short Film

The short film Prospect has been making its way across the web from the guys over at Shep Films. Prospect is the coming-of-age story of a teenage girl on a toxic alien planet. She and her father hunt for precious materials, aiming to strike it rich. When the father is attacked by a roving bandit, the daughter must take control.

They shot on a budget of around $28,000 raised through kickstarter and a small grant from 4Culture in Seattle. They say however, given the huge amount of volunteer time, labor, and talent donated to the effort, the actual cost would probably have been closer to $100,000. The camera used on the film was a Black Magic Cinema camera 2.5 which gets a thumbs up from us of course. For glass they paired inexpensive Nikon Ai lenses and one Tokina 11-16 wide with a re-purposed Panasonic AG-LA7200 Anamorphic adaptor.

We have to give kudos to the art direction and the cinematography from Zeek Earl is Gorgeous. Even though the backdrop is a forest, most of the minimal atmospheric special effects do a good job making you feel as if you are on another planet. All of that said its just a very well made short film. Check it out on vimeo: http://vimeo.com/90049558.
