Aliens do exist. Don't They? Of course, they do. After work, a guy tries to convince his friend that aliens do indeed exist. Like everyone else, he doesn't believe him and leaves. Left alone, our protagonist hears some stranges noises and spots a strange light, which he is convinced is: the First Contact.

After Nathan approached me about the MY Rode Reel Short Film Competition, I started writing. Coming together with multiple meetings we figured out the basis for our film and finalized it. I then went off and finished the script, storyboard and shot list, from there we confirmed a location and contacted our actors.
The shooting was a relatively easy experience, shooting late at night, however, posed the biggest challenge. Working with a Canon 650d, my low light performance was not the greatest, it caused shooting to take longer due to the time I spent changing the setting to get the best shot I could. The actors we were working with were my best friends, so shooting, of course, was awesome. We had a laugh and genuine fun making the short film together, however, I had to toe the line of friend and Director/Producer.
Editing didn't quite go as quickly as planned, as Nathan has University and I have a part-time job, it took longer than expected. With so many things on our plates we found time between our other obligations to get it done.
