A short film by Jack Caron and Taekyu Yang from the school of visual art class 2014.
“Native Prey” is the survival story of Eldan, a traveler who returns to his planet to find it dangerously altered after his time in space.
Eldan returns to his planet to find it dilapidated and overwhelmed with sediment and desolation, but not empty. A large flying beast stalks the skies above. Eldan flips the hunter/hunted roles and sets out to take down the creature. Ascending the stairs of a towering building, he gains the upper ground and must time his attack perfectly. He leaps from the roof, striking the unsuspecting beast with his spear and riding it to the ground. After the dust settles and he collects his spear, he soon discovers his survival story has just begun..
