Space Aliens (in space) is a comedy science fiction stop-motion animation series I plan to make,.
It will be a sort of sci-fi sit-com about some extraterrestrial-types whizzing around outer space in a slightly beat-up space ship.
It will have an overall 1970's aesthetic as can be seen in the inspiration images below.
There will be a main cast of three aliens, friends on a galactic "road" trip together, their design will be something like this:
except with fingers.
Will be beaten-up and scruffyt, like the old Dodge on the left but based in design more on "Starstreak" a custom-built motorhome from the 1970s, shown on the right:
With a 1970's inspired interior:
70s style props:
And overall 1970's aesthetic.
Here's some planning & sketches (click on images to view larger):
As yet I have no idea of a story for it, I plan to start with some very short clips of everyday life on-board ship and then move to longer 'episodes' forming some kind of narrative.
How much I actually do remains to be seen, I'm an expert at having great ideas that go nowhere and not finishing what I started!
Some plot ideas I have include:
One of them getting lost in space, and the rest have to rescue them.
They build a racing spaceship and enter a competition.
These ideas are basically because of music I want to use in them...
which brings me to...
I want to make really cool 1970's esque music - cool rock stuff - for it but I'm not very good at playing any instruments...
I want to make a theme tune that's like... Ziggy Stardust meets Doctor Who...
