^^ Agreed on both of the actors. I got the feeling that the captain was trying to be soothing and calm to keep the pilot from losing it, but he mostly came across as wooden.
Overall, it was very nice. Well directed and suspenseful with appealing special effects-- realism and artistry.
You should ask a Mod to combine this thread with your other thread so that all the material is in one place. This looks like a very promising project and I'll support it if you take it to Kickstarter.
I did download the script, but have not had a chance to read it yet-- I will, though.
