Director Statement

The film was inspired by two things: my homesickness as I was studying abroad in the UK, which inspired the space-setting and the story of my colleague from the London Film School who has a wife in the military in which her wife was often deployed in life-threatening missions. This predicament always made her worry about the possibility of her wife going home. From this idea, I started to write the story of Goodnight, Stargazer.

The story is a very simple and straightforward one story-wise, but the VFX and production design was something we wanted to try on as students to understand more about the workflow of a bigger scale production. In the end it was something we were proud to have made as we learned so much in-camera fx-wise and hardships from the production that we felt we were ready to tackle a more serious production.

While made in the UK, as the London Film School is a very international school, the film involved a very diverse crew. Mainly from Europe, China and Southeast Asia. The VFX was 90% done by the director himself in the span of seven months, with 10% of the VFX shots done by a more professional Indonesian VFX artist.
