“A young woodland scout abandons his troop during a Basilisk ambush and flees into the forest where he uses the memory of his Mother and words of his mentor to find the courage that will change his fate.”

Lookouts is an exciting fantasy-adventure debut from writer/director David Bousquet. It is live action with CGI, which complements the production in a dirty, rough-and-tumble way, not dissimilar to Spike Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are (2009).

‘What is the Basilisk?’ The question is repeated throughout, building tension, and the story, ably performed by the small cast: Chris Cleveland, Stefanie Estes and newcomer Kelton Roney. It plays like a Greek myth reimagined by Neil Gaiman. There are some elements of the story and costume design that are reminiscent of Dave McKean’s Mirrormask (2005), which was co-written by Gaiman.

It is clear that a great deal of work has gone into the design and production of this film. It is well worth taking a look at the beautiful book that they have published: Lookouts – Short Film Making-of Book. This covers photography, art & design from concept art, through concept and set design, to post-production. Brilliant insight for designers and filmmakers alike.

If Lookouts your kind of film, try Guillermo Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth (2006).
