Firstshowing.net just posted this fabulous “SXSW” science fiction short on their site and I was compelled to post it on ours. It’s a brilliant exercise in subtlety and restraint. PROSPECT is a father and daughter story about hope in a very bleak future. Directed by Zeek Earl & Chris Caldwell and starring Callie Harlow & Tony Doupe, it’s got a lot of that vintage seventies, science fiction, appeal, but with a bit of the modern thrown in there for good measure. The marriage between acting, music (compliments of the amazingly talented Daniel Caldwell) and cinematography, is flawless and believable. Not unlike films like MOON, Primer, Another Earth or HER, Prospect fits snugly among them and adds to the ,stripped down arsenal of great science fiction films, that have been getting much needed attention. This project, that was funded on Kickstarter, premiered at SXSW 2014 and has since been gaining steam. Let us know what you think.
