Some Mistakes you can't fix in post.

Descent is a Senior Thesis TV Pilot about a group of young community college filmmakers shooting a werewolf vs vampire short film, the director, Logan is insanely ambitious resulting in his team of friends to danger.  Tension from the production leads to the youngest's untimely demise.

Like the wings of Icarus, Descent is a cautionary tale of hubris before the fall.
