BEYOND THE WINDOW is an award-winning short Sci-Fi film that explores the fears and uncertainty of what is out there. Directed by Eric Smigiel and written by Eric Smigiel and Vic S. Blank. There is a noise in the night. You check under your bed. There is nothing there. You look around your bedroom. There is nothing but darkness... endless darkness. The noises get louder and more eerie. You hide under your bed sheet like it's your protective shield. A flicker of a light. Something is out there… past the curtain. You look further, afraid of what you might see. There is definitely something Beyond the Window.
