Sci-Fi Short Down To Earth Feels Like an Australian Stranger Things

Sci-Fi Short: Kids Meet an Alien in Down to Earth

Kind of wish you could see what happens next, right?

Down To Earth was directed by Nick Crowhurst and written by Stephanie Jaclyn, with a cast that includes Sebastien Skubala (Alex), Liam Daughtry (Eddie), and Kiki Nicholls (Stacey). Here’s the official synopsis:

Alex is a typical shy teenager crushing hard on his space obsessed next-door neighbour, Stacey. Despite the elaborate efforts to attract her attention, often with the misguided help of his doofus of a best friend, Eddie, Stacey barely notices him. This all changes when a meteorite crash lands on the outskirts of their small Australian country town. Seeing it an opportunity to get closer to Stacey, Alex proposes the three of them try and find it. Armed with a map, some walkie talkies and, in Eddie’s case, ample snacks, the three venture off into the outback. As the sun sets and with Eddie slowing them down, their chances of finding the meteorite quickly fades, until they stumble across a smoking barn and inside discover something out of this world!
