Prey Alone
NSA Special Agent Cain is on the hunt for an elusive killer. His only leads are a cocky eyewitness and the cryptic words scribbled on a notepad “Prey Alone.” At first confounded by the clues, Agent Cain gets the uneasy feeling that he has been here before. This edge-of-your-seat thrill ride of a short film is written and directed by James Mather and Stephen St. Leger. The filmmakers went on to produce the 2012 feature film Lock Out starring Guy Pearce. Principal cast: Ger Carey, Andy Moore and Kurt Savage.
