Footnote is a short film dealing with the rise of enhanced superheroes (nicknamed Capes) and the growing hatred of them by a former news reporter.
Individuals with "enhanced powers" nicknamed Capes by the media roam the city streets bringing justice, or so the news would lead the public to believe. Former news cameraman and reporter Clive has made it a personal vendetta to prove to the public how bad these capes are. When his former fiance and reporter colleague Barbara asks him to help her continue to falsify the news reports, tempers rise and past events come to light that some would rather keep hidden.

The film spawned a short story sequel called "Footnote: Executive Decision" which follows the events taking place the day after this film. The story, taking place at WNPX and featuring Barbara's boss Xavier Wakefield (played by Kris Schulz as a background character) and his connection to this and future stories, was created as production wrapped on the film.
- The first official "New Prairie" short film in 3 years.
- The entire film was written, shot, and edited in the span of 72 hours for part of a film competition.
- WNPX, Hazdon Industries, and The Rotary were all created 10 years prior to the making of this film for use in other short stories, however this is the first official appearance of either in a completed media work.
- New Prairie was previously home to superheroes of type during the 90's when crime fighting vigilante Gravestone roamed the streets.
- The idea that spawned this film was "the origin story of the bad guy in a superhero world".
