What would happen if there was an alien invasion on an average night when you are just hanging out with your brothers and gaming? Would you know what was happening or know what to do about it?
Ed, James and Tom are surprised by a power cut and strange lights and noises. Should you be brave or hide?

I flimed this in Wimbledon, London at my house.
I had no budget but was lucky enough to have a camera, rode mic and a decent hand held light.

We wanted to film it at night (which was a huge learning curve because I had no idea to light it properly so had to work it out as I went along). A mixture of iphone lights, house lights and the VILTROX VL-162T CRI95+ LED Video Light gave us an alien and lit the actors.
My brothers and I all act so I had actors to hand so that was good! I think they both did a great job.
Chris Loser sent me some sound effects and I recorded a lot too with the Rode mic and mixed them all into the final cut.
I wanted to try to create a 3 minute short that had some tension and try to create fear from unseen entity that I made from light and sound. I think it is important to let the viewer's imagination do some of the work.
I live in the UK and tea is a big thing here and we drank a lot of it making this film!
