Apple Jack

Apple Jack, also known as The Legend of Apple Jack, is a short film that takes place on the specific date of Halloween Eve, October 30, 1938. On this date, UFO sightings are reported in the skies of various localities across the United States. CBS radio covers the story, and the people of a neighborhood band together to defend their town against the extraterrestrials that have apparently come to Earth. Ironically, on the same date, two infamous prison inmates escape from a maximum security facility, and are never seen or heard from again. Apple Jack interweaves these two events, and utilizes the two seemingly opposite concepts of random chance and fate to deliver the story while exploring the theme of intervention from another realm.
