This science fiction comedy ended up becoming a three year labour of love for director Christian Nicolson and his crew. Inspired by memories of old school sci fi like Blake’s 7 and The Six Million Dollar Man  — in those long ago days before computers transformed special effects —  the film follows three geeks plunged into an alien world which inexplicably resembles a B-grade movie. The project was born as one of 750 entries in low budget contest Make My Movie; it was runner-up. In 2016 the finished film won Best Comedy prizes at genre festivals in London and Boston.

The news is we have finished all principal photography. Yippee. I have released my actors of the bonds, so they can finally get a haircut or shave their beards after nearly two years of filming. A far cry from the three months I first promised. Some things just take time. So I now am in the middle of editing and finishing off some little bits of filming. Saturday I filmed rabbits and lizards and Sunday we started filming the spaceships...
