Director Biography - Paul Weston

Grew up obviously loving movies. Then after watching Star Wars in 1977 on the opening night, developed an interest in film-making. Though unable to pursue the craft professionally, Paul finally turned it into a serious hobby after acquiring the wonderful editing/visual effects software Hitfilm.
Then began a series of small visual effects videos, each one getting more and more complex. A friend then suggested to him to perhaps start making "short films" which would string all these effects together.
So began a series of short films, which though low on plot, dazzled with (at first) low budget effects. Each successive film, generating new and better visuals as he went on. Eventually culminating in the last film being screened at the Creation Film Festival in Canada and winning the category of "Best Science Fiction Short".
Paul continues to push the boundaries of visual effects with each subsequent movie.

Director Statement

This film, like all of my projects, is very much a low budget amateur affair. Shot only on a mobile phone, with no professional tripod to rest it on......and no professional actors to speak of.
What I do have are very passionate and sociable friends that love to get together and do some fun stuff :). A few of them are from overseas, and only too happy to send me their footage via the internet. Then combining that with my passion for making Special Visual Effects, we end up with a fun romp that hopefully will make the viewers laugh and/or smile.
