Director Statement

Although this is our second feature we are still an extremely small crew. I direct, shoot, edit and do most of the VFX, my wife Amanda composes the music and is producer, locations and casting.
Most shooting days our crew consisted of 4 people myself, Amanda, a boom operator and a runner.
We do have a sales agent who we involve in all our submissions to make sure there is no conflicts with selections and sales.
Selection to your Festival is extremely important to us, it will mean Alien Outbreak reaches people we could never dream of reaching, which is what we need to do if we are ever going to make a third feature.

Thankyou for your time, and I hope you enjoy our film.

Neil Rowe
