The 12th Search
In 1984 the upside down is spreading to military research centre’s across the pond. The town folk of Rendlesham, England are conducting their 12th search in the forest for one of many recent disappearances. Unfortunately on this night one of the searchers discovers what is taking these victims.
I am a massive fan of Netflix’s Stranger Things and wanted to make a short fan film to show my admiration for the show. I wanted to treat it almost like a spinoff set in England showing a connection between these research facilities around the world and the spread of the upside down as well as adding a new creature to the universe.
