A look at Planet One

While Job Hunting online I came across this studio based out of Madrid, Spain that looks like they are doing some promising work. The studio is called Ilion Animation Studios. They are currently working on a feature film entitled Planet One. A description of the film from their website states...
On Planet One, the locals have two antenna, eight fingers and tons of fear about alien invaders. They live in a world like our suburban 1950’s, with sci-fi flicks, gory comic books and paranoid army generals barking about monsters from outer space.

A young inhabitant of Planet One, Lem, thinks that space can be wonderful, but he lacks the courage to even move out of his parents’ basement. Then one day, out of the sky, an alien ship appears with something funny written on it: NASA. It is piloted by astronaut and ladies man, Captain Russ Baker. Russ had expected to plant the American Flag on a baron planet, only to land at someone’s backyard barbecue.

Now Captain Russ Baker’s new friend, Lem, must keep him safe from the fearful authorities and help him recover his confiscated ship to get back home.

The premise sounds great and artwork for the film looks fantastic so far. I hope it gets distribution in the US when its complete. You can find out more about the film and the studio here:
