Teaser Trailer for Sci-Fi Short Film 'The Beacon' About a Missing Pilot
"I do this one-month contract, and all of us can move to a better place. See you when I see you." This just looks too damn good, can't help but share this trailer. The Beacon is a mesmerizing new sci-fi short film made by VFX artist Chris Staehler, his second short after working in the visual effects industry for almost 10 years. Set in the distant future, Staehler's short film The Beacon is about Mark and Kara Verne - both young shipping pilots who are struggling to make ends meet. When Kara goes missing months after taking a large interstellar contract, Mark travels to the far reaches of the galaxy in search of her. Starring Damien Kelly, Kylie Contreary, Eric Snow, and Claire Montegomery. It's no surprise the VFX look incredible, which enhance the story of these travelers. I'm really looking forward to seeing the short (which runs 25 minutes).
