It’s very rare that we cover short films on /Film these days, but when one as impressive as Skywatch comes along, we’re happy to make an exception. The sci-fi thriller short is the brainchild of independent filmmaker Colin Levy, who left his job at Pixar Animation Studios to finish his short about two teen hackers who poke their noses where they shouldn’t, hoping to chase his dream of expanding the concept into a feature-length movie.

His Kickstarter-funded short film debuted online today, and it’s one of the best shorts I’ve seen in years. Check it out below, and read on for our interview with Levy about crafting its stunning visual effects, locking down an A-list actor for a cameo, and more.

I don’t know about you, but I was incredibly impressed with what I saw here. Those VFX are just about as good as anything that’s in any modern Hollywood blockbuster, and the story feels like it was honed down and perfected, unlike a lot of other visually-impressive shorts which sometimes feel as if the filmmakers just shot the first draft. And before we get to the interview, a quick shout-out to actors Uriah Shelton 13 Reasons Why, Looking for Alaska and Zach Callison Steven Universe, The Goldbergs for threading the needle of being good-natured without being creepy here – that’s a tough line that easily could have been crossed with the wrong performers in these lead roles.

Read on for our discussion with Colin Levy about how this whole project came together and what he hopes will happen next.
