Stellar Sci-Fi Alien Action Short Film ‘Hybrids’ from Patrick Kalyn


“352 days since their arrival.” There’s another new sci-fi short film that just hit the web that many folks are flipping over already. I’ve received numerous emails linking me to this film Hybrids, an 8-minute science fiction alien action/revenge short written & directed by Patrick Kalyn. It stars Daniella Evangelista as a badass warrior girl who fights her way through a number of blue-blooded alien creatures, with weapons. It’s pretty cool for something made for nearly nothing and is the directing debut of Kalyn, a visual effects artist on films like Avatar, District 9 and King Kong hoping to make this his big debut. It’s worth a watch below.

The film was written & directed by Patrick Kalyn, with cinematography by Cliff Hokanson and music by Sam Hulick, produced by Gabriel Paul Napora & Triton Films. Kalyn explained: “I’ve been a visual effects artist for the last decade and have worked Avatar, District 9 and King Kong to name a few. The short is pretty VFX heavy as you could imagine. Triton Films produced, we shot this thing for no money. It was a labour of love… blood, sweat and tears for the last 10 months for everyone involved.” Visit
