This was my third short film and was spawned out of a film challenge from Ed Video Arts Centre in Guelph, Ontario, Canada to make a comedy film. I found writing and directing comedy to be the most difficult form of filmmaking and so decided to take on the challenge. The idea of an alien observing corporate project meetings stuck with me through many years working for hi-tech companies where obscure acronyms and proprietary jargon fill the everyday communications. Finally, I wanted to hire professional actors and crew, and use a hi-end professional camera (the RED One) to raise the stakes and the quality of the film production.
The Executive Officer of a mysterious corporation inspects her managers on the eve of launching a secret project that has attracted serious scrutiny from a race of higher beings who are concerned for the future of humanity. This dark comedy puts the bizarre and cryptic inside machinations of the corporate world under a microscope; a microscope that just happens to be held by aliens.
