Watch This: 80's Adventure Throwback Rescue Short Film 'Beyond'
"I can do this!" Another outstanding short film that is worth your time. This one is titled Beyond, and it's from writer/director Jeremy Haccoun (see @JeremyHaccoun). This is also exciting to watch because we originally featured this back in 2012 when it was looking for funding on Kickstarter, now four years later you can see the completed short film and it's impressive. Haccoun wanted to make an adventure film that hearkens back to the Spielberg movies of the 80s, like Indiana Jones and The Goonies, and he certainly achieved that. Even the score is pretty much a John Williams throwback. This is also the kind of fun film where a kid does something crazy, but pulls it off, which is cool because this should inspire kids to be brave.
Description from Vimeo: "Remember the early Spielberg era of the 80s? Indiana Jones? The Goonies? Are you hungry for more adventure films full of childlike excitement and edge-of-your-seat action scenes? Beyond is an epic adventure short about a family on a desert road trip. When a rock fall traps his parents inside a burning car, a 7 year-old boy must find the hero within him in order to save their lives…" Beyond is written and directed by Jeremy Haccoun; we originally featured this when it was on Kickstarter years ago. Starring Aidan Flynn, Jolene Kay, and Michael Dane; with cinematography by Sergio Arguello and music by Siddhartha Barnhoorn. Visit the official website for additional info.

Music was definitely straight from the 80s! I enjoyed that.

Great video. Is there a YouTube link for this. This format is terrible and slow...

I don't like vimeo. It used to suck . Maybe they've improved the player,

Did you check the video of the indie film "37" ? Definitely no volume control or timeline.

Great little short. Really enjoyed it....even had a few feels. But seriously, talk about shitty driving....you're in the open desert and your drive next to the only vertical wall for 1,000 miles....the one with loose rocks all over it....

That's one bigass tank, I mean, it was like 500 Liters of gasoline, at least...
