Short | Welcome to Earth (2019)

It’s 2618 and humans are extinct. Four aliens travel to Earth to visit the museum of humanity. There they find the story of the last heroes of humanity, setting out to find help.

Welcome to Earth is a short science fiction film filmed in the Netherlands. It was made with a large group of both professional and amateur filmmakers. To bring the world to life it was filmed on both unique locations and inside sets build specifically for this film. It contains designs in both props and costumes that are specifically created for this film. 

Viewers have described this as a beautifull film with an emotional story. The strong script was one of the driving forces behind the creation of this film. Many crewmembers and castmembers found themselves drawn to the script. 

The Open Filmteam is commited to giving everyone in the Netherlands the chance to participate in the creation of films of a professional level. Its productions give unique experiences to both its professional as its amateur participants.

Though made on a shoe-string budget, we've strived to make this a cinematic film with the depth the story deserves. Due to the professionals in key positions during the creation, the visual style, sound design and music were all of professional quality. Combined with great locations, set design and hand crafted props we hope this is a film both lovers of indy films as people with a more average taste in movies will enjoy. 

This films was made possible by the support of several Dutch organisations and funds. Among the contributors were: Fonds Cultuurparticipatie, VSBfonds, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds and Gigant.
