Kindred, a film by a lot of people, is set to hit the short film festival circuit from mid-August.

Sydney, Australia, August 18, 2014 -(PressReleasePoint)- Kindred, the 9-minute indie short - and the first sci-fi to star indigenous Australians - is set to hit the short film festival circuit from mid-August.

The film follows a cynical young Indigenous man (Damion Hunter) and his family, who are abducted by aliens. Leading them on a breathtaking escape, he discovers the aliens' origins, shattering his worldview forever.

On July 18, a private screening of Kindred took place at Chauvel Cinema in Paddington, Sydney for its crowdsourced funders, cast, crew and friends.

Kindred was written by Producer, VFX & Post Supervising Director Josh Bryer, the founder of Red Centre Films. It was produced in association with Altaire Productions; the main executive producer was Marie Slaight; it was co-produced by Annie Kinnane; and the live action was directed by Oscar Nicholson.

Kindred's budget was raised by a combination of crowdsourcing and investments. While the all-important VFX were sourced from all over the world - as far afield as Brazil, USA, Italy and India - and put together first by Digital Pulse then taken to the finish line by leading Sydney VFX house Heckler who also hosted the online edit.

A key alien effect was added by ZSpace, FSM did the grade, and the sound and music was made and mixed by Smith & Western.
