An important message for would-be conquerers of our planet from the Earth Invasion Authority.  Sometimes the best defense is a good bureaucracy.

Created by Jamie Gower

Director Biography

I'm always looking for ways I can subvert technology to tell stories. I staged a production of Hamlet V.ii. entirely in the video game Starcraft, wrote an episodic webcomic for a Fortune 50 software company, captured and edited machinima trailers for a major Northwest game studio, and turned PowerPoint into an animation studio for the video cycle [1] New Message, where this video comes from.

Director Statement

I was visiting San Francisco, and started thinking about how many times the Golden Gate bridge has been destroyed by mutated monsters and extraterrestrial attacks (and once damaged by Christopher Walken's airship).  And that's just one bridge in one city--as the movies have shown us, Earth gets invaded a lot. So why don't we have an agency to ensure that these rampaging conquerors are at least, you know, orderly?

About The Event

Ted Geoghegan 2017, USA, 91 mins

The War of 1812 has revived violent hostilities between the British and their erstwhile American colonial subjects. The powerful Mohawk nation of the New York region is divided as to whom they should stand by, and so they maintain a position of neutrality. They want no part in the killing – but the killing is coming to them. An impulsive attack on an American encampment has drawn the vengeful attentions of a ragged band of American military renegades, led by the vicious, racist Hezekiah Holt. Oak, Calvin, and their British lover Joshua flee into the woods so familiar to them, but the murderous musketeers on their trail will not be deterred. Not without the spilling of blood.
