Sci-fi short ‘The Long Dig’ starring Kate Hackett, Cliff Simon and more premieres on Fangirl Nation
By Staff Reports
Fangirl Nation has shared an exclusive first look at the short sci-fi film The Long Dig, starring Kate Hackett (Classic Alice), Paul Todd (Candice, Classic Alice), Sarah Cortez (Dear White People, Angie Tribeca) and Cliff Simon (Stargate SG-1, NCIS). The film was directed by Tom R. Pike (Personal Space) and written by Kate Hackett and Tom R. Pike.
Eve (Hackett) scours decaying old ruins for Antenoch technology that was buried or otherwise preserved. Having – she hopes – perfected a mixture of oils that will prevent the decay of Antenoch artifacts, Eve is equipped to safely remove them from these ruins. Today, she’s found an old transportation hub, perhaps a subway, haunted by monsters and hiding treasure. It is an adventure in darkness, with flashes of fear and bursts of action, about one woman’s desperate desire to return home.
The Long Dig is part of the larger Aeronauts universe, a tabletop game from Electric Purple Studios that will be released at a later date and was recently previewed at PAX. The Long Dig was also recently accepted to the Chicago Independent Film and TV Festival.
