Sci-Fi Fans You Have to Watch This Excellent Amateur Project

British filmmaker Matt Westrup may have secured his big break into the film industry with his amazingly solid sci-fi short The Gate.  This 8-minute journey is full of everything that makes for a thrilling adventure that isn’t rooted in our own reality.  Due to its excellence Westrup now has the backing of a U.K. company called Wayfare to make a feature length version of the film.

This project just goes to show you that talented amateurs can still make it in the biz, and that the power of social networking is stronger than ever when it comes to promoting your hard work.  Check out The Gate below and let us know what you think.  Would you be willing to go see a feature length version of it based on what you saw below?  You’ve been thinking this short may be better than Prometheus
