Sci-Fi Short Film “The Beacon”

Mark and Kara Verne are both young shipping pilots 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 his wife.

This short film has the feel and look of Alien. Like Alien this is more horror but not as heavy. The short does a good job of building tension toward the final climax. The special effects and CGI are great. Nice short.
