Spaceman

With the world a matter of hours away from a cataclysmic asteroid impact, Myles believes he has found a way to spare his family from certain death.

Director’s Statement

I grew up watching films like ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ and ‘E.T: The Extra Terrestrial’. Pieces that imbued a sense of awe, wonder, magic and mystery through their immersive storytelling and strong visual language… Spaceman is my love letter to my fond memories and my attempt to come to terms with my own adulthood and whether that means all of that magic and awe is lost forever.

Is there really such a thing as a hopeless situation? In the eyes of a learned, life weary adult then perhaps so, but through the eyes of a child the world is still open to boundless possibilities and exciting, imaginative concepts that the years of adulthood slowly wear down over time. It is important, I think, to revisit those times and to not lose that sense of wonder and magic in our lives. I’m sure we have all been guilty of doing it as we get bogged down with work pressures, struggles and other ties of adulthood, so through telling this story, I hope that we can all re-awaken that sense, even if for a few minutes, within each other.
