Watch: Sci-Fi Short Film 'Mimic' About a Submarine That Vanishes
"Only 20 of your crew were ever found. What happened to the other 100 men you were sworn to protect?" An intriguing, low key sci-fi short film that is built entirely around dialogue. Mimic is a short film made by LA-based filmmaker Scott Jeschke, who has been cooking up shorts for years while working to establish himself in the industry. In Mimic, a lone investigator seeks out answers from a reclusive Navy veteran to uncover what happened to a submarine that mysteriously vanished into the atmosphere one day. This stars Luke Persiani and Brian Jackson. The short works better as a scene or two in a feature film, but maybe that's the point - this is a pitch for something bigger. The final reveal is expected, but it's still eerie to see it.
