Short Film: Prospect

"Prospect" Directed by Zeek Earl & Chris Caldwell of Shep Films

In this short film, directors Zeek Earl and Chris Caldwell transplant an old story trope from the deserts of old westerns to the science fiction genre.  In it, a teenage girl and her father are prospecting for precious salvage materials in the verdant forests of an alien world in the hope of striking it rich, but their very lives hang in the balance when they encounter a futuristic claim jumper trying to seize what their findings.  It's a great twist on an old story that's very well executed.
"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. Prospect premiered at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival."
