With a shoestring budget, a small but dedicated crew, and an abandoned animal shelter to film in, co-directors Alex Haughey
and Brian Vidal
created their feature film debut, the sci-fi thriller Prodigy
. Centered on a nine-year-old genius with some lethal psychic abilities to go along with her amazing intellect, Prodigy
is out now on DVD and VOD platforms, and we caught up with Haughey for a new Q&A feature to discuss the journey to the film's home media release, including changing the main character from a boy to a girl during the casting process, making the transition from short films to a feature-length project, only having one take for a crucial glass-breaking scene, and much more.
For those unfamiliar with Prodigy
, we have the official synopsis below, and you can read on for the full Q&A feature with Haughey and visit the film's website and iTunes page for more information.
