“Simple Sci-Fi Short Film ‘On Sunday’ from Director David Lea”
“This film has made David Lea a filmmaker to watch out for.”
AIN’T IT COOL NEWS – SATURDAY SHORTS
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.
