Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite.

In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.

"Beyond - The Adventure Short!"

Tweetable Logline:

When an accident traps his parents inside a burning car, a 7 year-old boy must find the hero within him in order to save their lives…

Elevator Pitch:

Remember the early Spielberg era of the 80s? Indiana Jones? The Goonies? Are you hungry for more adventure films full of childlike excitement and edge-of-your-seat action scenes?

This is where we're taking you with BEYOND, an adventure short film about a family on a road trip across the California desert. When an accident traps the parents inside the burning car, their little boy must find the hero within him in order to save their lives…

Production Team:

Writer/Director: Jeremy Haccoun

About the Production:

"Ever since I started directing, I’ve been wanting to create the most incredible action sequence - not just spectacle, but a scene where characters we care about do extraordinary things to overcome hopeless situations. The story of this little boy becoming a hero to save his parents’ lives brings together most of the things I love about adventure - action, suspense, love, tears, hope, heroism... The goal is to offer all that in a sequence fresh out of a big adventure movie, and do it all for $82,000. If we succeed, we can have a finished product this Summer!" -- Jeremy Haccoun
