Meet 5000 space aliens in 5000 seconds in this fun and totally bonkers animated film that uses computer-manipulated found footage and collage, all created by director Scott Bateman.

5000 Space Aliens is an entertaining non-narrative film unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It’s a one-man tour de force: Scott Bateman not only created the animated footage, he also composed the 84-minute score!

Scott Bateman spent 2-1/2 years scouring the Internet for all sorts of found footage: home movies from the 1920s to today, TV commercials from the 1960s to the 1990s, fashion films, dance videos, old photos from photo studios in Venezuela and Bulgaria, you name it.

Then he manipulated that footage in Photoshop, Fireworks, and Premiere Pro to create the 5000 one-second portraits that make up 5000 Space Aliens.

Packed with memorable visual images, let all 5000 Space Aliens wash over you.

5000 Space Aliens was produced by Lucas A. Ferrara and directed by Scott Bateman.
