The film follows two aliens as they struggle to survive, elude capture and communicate with their mothership. It is a dark, and sometimes bizarre alien film which manages to tell a surprisingly human story – exploring very relevant concepts about immigration, homelessness and xenophobia.
As Adam explains, “It’s about this father and daughter who are homeless and living out of the back of his beaten up Ford Bronco. It starts to become apparent that they are actually aliens, hiding in human bodies… trying desperately to get a signal to their people.”
The creatives at Cutting Edge jumped at the opportunity to collaborate on the project after Sloan and Mason stumbled across their work online. The band loved what happened next.
“We’re thrilled with the aesthetic that Zenon and his team brought to the film. Their visual effects and design contribution really complemented Adam’s vision,” said Sean Kinney, drummer for Alice in Chains.
Cutting Edge joined the project part way through, coming onboard from episode six.
Director Adam Mason added, “They elevated the whole thing so massively I can’t even really put it into words. It has been a wonderful collaboration… they suggested so many things I would never have even thought of.”
“It was a totally fluid thing. There were obviously plenty of things in the script that needed addressing, all of which they totally knocked out of the park. But for me the real joy came for me in our collaboration on the more subtle things… like the title sequences for each episode. Those were all things I never really expected and are now my fav things in the episodes full stop.” said Mason.
