This Giant Papier Mâché Boulder is Actually Really Heavy

Film (Trailer and Excerpts) – 2016


This sci-fi comedy became a four-year labour of love for director Christian Nicolson. It was inspired by memories of old school sci-fi like Blake’s 7 and Star Trek, in the days before computers transformed special effects. Three geeks (one played by Nicolson) are plunged into an alien world which inexplicably resembles a B-grade movie. The project was runner-up from 750 entries in low budget contest Make My Movie. In this excerpt, the crew have some tense encounters while trying to find replacement spaceship parts at a trading post. Boulder won Best Comedy prizes at sci-fi festivals in London and Boston.

Just tell me about when you were growing up — like, you know what sort of house did you live in? Did you have a dog, or a boyfriend? Or have you ever kissed a girl? That sort of thing.
– Tom (Christian Nicolson) tries to get to know Emmanor (Sez Niederer)
