Director Statement

I am always excited to take part in Hellavision Television's bi-yearly themed episodes, which offer a great opportunity to go full silly like this. The concept is inspired largely by an old friend's thought that aliens probably had visited Earth in the past, but it was just another dinosaur planet so they haven't bothered coming back. The narration is partially a goof on Carl Sagan's pale blue dot speech. The midi music is based on the work of Franz Schubert.
