Cool Short: Lookouts – Beware the Basilisk!


Lookouts, which has just screened at the LA Short Fest in September and will screen in November at the St. Louis International Film Festival.

It is well worth 12 minutes of your time as it is a great tale with brilliant visual effects. This is seriously impressive stuff. It actually feels more like an extended clip from a film or TV series.

Check it out below and share your thoughts in the comments.

Pehn, a young woodland scout, races deep into the Eyrewood forest after abandoning his troop of Lookouts as they fall victim to a Basilisk ambush. With guidance from the memories of his Mother and words of warning passed down from his mentor, Pehn struggles to find the courage he’ll need to confront his fate and defeat the horrifying creature that hunts him.

Husband and wife team, David and Kristin Bousquet, are experienced motion production specialists through their company, RedGate Films in San Francisco. “Lookouts” is their first venture into classic narrative filmmaking, and is based on the popular Penny Arcade comic series May We Die in the Forest.”

On the strength of this short I hope we get to see lots more from them.
