5000 Space Aliens hits Digital this November!

Director Scott Bateman & Producer Lucas A. Ferrara are excited to share the trailer for their new genre-bending animation, 5000 Space Aliens, which is coming to digital download worldwide from 21st November 2023.

Imagine meeting a space alien. Now imagine meeting one space alien every second.

This is what happens in Scott Bateman’s groundbreaking animated film 5000 Space Aliens. Scott Bateman has turned found footage, vintage photo studio pictures from Venezuela and Romania, scraps from a 100-year-old psychology textbook, and more into 5000 one-second shots of animated characters.

Instead of a typical narrative, 5000 Space Aliens is more like a ride: You just let the hypnotic rhythm of images wash over you. This one-of-a-kind animated extravaganza was made by just one animator, director Scott Bateman.

Bateman also created the electronic-tinged soundtrack. FilmThreat said, “Groundbreaking style. The future has landed!” Get ready for an exciting new cinematic experience with 5000 Space Aliens!

5000 Space Aliens was Medusa Underground Film Festival’s ‘Best Picture’ and has received multiple ‘official selections’ at a raft of international festivals.

Pulled from the fantastical mind of Director Scott Bateman who’s previous work includes The Bateman Lectures on Depression and You Your Brain & You, Film Threat said “Scott Bateman has truly done something wonderful and exciting”.

Not your average filmmaker, Bateman took the incredible leap to fund his projects via game shows, winning $100,000 (and a cruise) on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, as well as becoming a one-day Jeopardy! champion.

On making the film, Scott Bateman says, “Storytelling is everywhere these days, it’s ridiculous. But not everything has to tell a story. I believe movies can do other things as well, and still be fun and entertaining to watch. So with 5000 Space Aliens, I set out to create an entertaining, non-narrative film.

5000 Space Aliens has a visual rhythm of one shot per second, and it is an absolutely hypnotizing movie-going experience. It’s like a ride: you don’t have to think, you just let it wash over you. The music acts as a thread through the whole film, your friend who’s on the ride with you.

I’m very happy that it all worked. 5000 Space Aliens is a very fun movie to watch with a group of friends at home or in a theater. There are so many “What did I just see?” moments, and it’s highly re-watchable.

But also, I wanted to make a film but had no money at the time. So I was looking for a way I could make a movie all by myself. This was a fun challenge, as it’s been one so rarely. I did all this animation, created all this music, did the editing, all of it. I had a blast making this film, and I’m so happy it’s a blast so audiences can experience this groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind film. There’s never been another film like this.”

Producer Lucas A. Ferrara, says “This unique work, which was a by-product of the COVID-19 pandemic, was created by just one man during the lockdown. Without the assistance of another human being, Scott Bateman singlehandedly animated and scored an entire feature-length exposé about the thousands of alien creatures who are believed to be living among us.

If you’re looking for something quirky, off-beat, and extremely entertaining, check out this unique film. And while you’re at it, you’d best fasten your seatbelts, as you’ll likely encounter some turbulence as this mesmerizing movie takes you on a fast-paced, high-speed joyride. An engaging alternate reality awaits.”

  5000 Space Aliens is coming to digital download Worldwide 21st November 2023.
