LOS ANGELES - Oct. 7, 2016 - PRLog -- Live action fantasy short "Lookouts" will screen at St. Louis International Film Festival on November 12, after gaining industry and audience buzz when it screened at LA Shorts Fest in September.
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."

"Lookouts is a stellar achievement that invests in its ideas and its practical/CGI effects enough to bring a monster to life in the middle of an engaging campfire tale. Its merits make a strong argument for a feature-length version." Nerdist
