writer: Roger Price
directors: Roger Price and Geoffrey Darby
Proposed pilot for a Saturday morning TV show on Nick. Unfortunately, it was never picked up. A really cool show with a great story and a great cast!
Created by Roger Price and Geoffrer Darby, this would have been an excellent series. It was filmed almost entirely in an Ultimatte studio at CJOH-TV, one of the very first Ultimatte studios. They were given three months to produce the pilot. However, being the Ultimatte studio was "new technology", the director and crew took almost six months to produce the pilot. They did an exceptional job on the project!
Nickelodeon lost interest in the idea, fearing that the episodes would not be produced in a timely manner.
Fantastic sound track created with the legendary Moog Synthesizer. Excellent costumes and "monsters" created by Liz Ciesluk!
Aliens abduct people and sell them as pets on another planet; until they kidnap Kevin and his little brother, Alasdair, who is able to affect control of the ship. They escape their kidnappers only to find themselves unable to locate Earth.
quality: "B" This is a copy that I received in trade. Fairly good picture and sound. Runtime: 51 minutes
