    Prey Alone by James Mather and Stephen St. Leger
    Pony Place by Joost Reijmers


    Prey Alone
    Ireland
    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.
