A revisit to the county of my youth and a nostalgic train journey.
Always wanted to remake an epic and this is mine and Suzie's favourite Sci-Fi scene. Filmed entirely in my lounge over a weekend on an iPad. Never work with animals or children or stuffed toys! Having to work with such small actors posed a logistical problem with us spending most of the time lying down on the job. We used a green screen to transpose the characters into the interior of a spaceship. Also created backgrounds and opening scenes using a 3D rendering software which I had only just obtained at the beginning of the weekend we started filming. The opening soundtrack was created using musical notes fed through different sound effects. The main characters voices were created by Suzie and I multi-tracking the different voices. This required several pots of tea! We used my own photo of a cloudy sky in the alien planet establishing shot.
