Hybrids, written and directed by Patrick Kalyn, is a science-fiction/action short about an ex-soldier, Dakota (Daniella Evangelista), seeking vengeance for the death of her young daughter. In this short teaser for a longer feature, Dakota faces off against a group of aliens in an abandoned car lot (evoking similarities to District 9). The short ends with a boom, both literally and figuratively, where the special effects really get to shine. The visual effects are what help make Hybrids stand out. The fight scene between Dakota and the alien is almost seamless, which can’t be said about many indie shorts attempting to blend CGI with live-action.
Keep your eyes peeled for more from Hybrid as production for the aforementioned feature-length film continues. You can find out more information on the Hybrids website.
