On Christmas Eve, a small UFO struggling find his place in the universe follows his two mischievous friend’s down to earth, whilst trying to impress and gain their acceptance he inadvertently changes Christmas forever.
‘Invaders‘ takes the Christmas classic to a place it’s never been before. Somewhere in between Star Wars and Home Alone, this wonderful film by Daniel Prince is about to inadvertently change Christmas forever.
I really wanted “Invaders” to have a nostalgic nod to the first films that interested and excited me about films, so the feel and look was influenced by early Amblin and other 80’s classics. Hoping the outcome would be something my 10 year old self would want to watch, but at the same time to appeal across a broad range of ages.
Rather remarkable in its composition and visual effects, Daniel mostly used an Arri Alexa Mini with Cooke Primes, and softwares like Maya and Nuke for all the 3D work. Ultimately it’s the charming little story that brings the wonder out of this film, but it’s certainly driven by the fantastic characters portrayed from these voiceless UFOs.
