ON SUNDAY is a my paean to the science fiction films of my childhood. I wanted to create a simple film that told a story in its own time and captured the sense of wonder I feel is lost in many of the films released today.
‘ON SUNDAY’ took 5 years to complete – mainly because I did it ‘Gareth Edwards’ style taking on around 90% of the films production and post production myself and having to learn around 5 different CG packages from scratch in order to create the ship wreck which features in the film.
This film is a thank you to my Dad, who actually features in the film. Way back in 1984 he hand built a cabin bed for my bedroom and underneath this, made from wood, flashing lights and copper piping he’d constructed a spaceship cockpit. I was 6 years old and via fuzzy VHS’s already indoctrinated in the ways of the force, last star fighters and Xenomorphs – my dad used to censor the scary bits by recording Sunday Cricket over them. The finished cabin bed was a fledgling geek’s dream come true.
31 years later I thought it was past time to repay the favour and build him his very own spaceship.

Scientists are nowadays explorers. Whether they launch rockets in space, built submarines to explore the deepest oceans and work to understand how our brains and bodies work, they strive to break barriers.
SEEDS is about one type of those scientists, the astronauts, whose curiosity to visit other planets leads them to make enormous sacrifices.
