Life Out There

Billy, a UFO spotter living with his dad, realises it’s time to really find life out there

Comedy-drama with a supernatural twist about Billy, a young man who is a UFO spotter. After being humiliated on national television, deeply unfashionable Billy begins to wonder if there is more to life than his job in a costume shop and caring for his ungrateful father. But however much he changes, can he see what is right under his nose? Starring Sean Richards, Bob Duncan and Rebecca-Anne Withey, this film was written by James Banks and directed by David Ellington, who previously collaborated on the BSL Zone film 50/50. Don't miss it!

In early 2013, Life Out There was nominated for two RTS awards. Find out more by clicking here.

  • Really great to see behind the scenes and the making of 'life out there'. I also wanted it to carry on forever...Iwhatever happened to those two? Sarah and Billy...could there be a sequel? I got to really like and care about their characters, an achievement in such a short film.

  • Lovely film, especially the relationship between Billy and his loser friend. Only wish it could have been a bit longer, to get to know the characters better...

  • I'm hearing and trying to learn the BSL..not very good at it yet but viewing this film the first time urged me to view it many more times to understand all the sign language that I might have missed the first time. Its so emotional. Situations really exist in both the deaf and hearing world. Well done!!!

  • A very amusing and whimsical film. Some parts are sad, some funny. It is beautifully written, directed, produced and acted. Some signing influenced by English and suitable for Deaf from hearing families. Perhaps that was deliberate to reach a wide audience.

  • Such a jewel of a film. Done in such a heartfelt manner. Truly a roller coaster of emotions and issues that touch us all. Lastly, no one can say these two characters are 'losers'. What fine actors. I am such low level BSL learner that I can hardly understand words not to mention entire phrasing. No problem, I just repeat every scene over and over again, trying to imitate what is being said. The sign of a good film is that I enjoy seeing it over and over again. I hope these films come out in DVD soon.
