Ned Botwood - 24th June 2019

They’ve vanquished the evil alien… now what? Eoin Glaister dares to dream of life after victory, in this depressive space epic for Joji.

Starships can be a cold and boring place. Now there’s nobody left to save humanity from, Captain Joji has nothing left to do but mope around, play ping-pong with his crew, and reminisce about the glory days. Fortunately for this action-starved crew, Joji’s deputy is starting to have evil delusions of his own.

Glaister’s fantastic video is a pitch-perfect subversion of TV sci-fi tropes. It’s all there: the camp costumes, the dodgy prosthetics, the body paint, the streaky lazers, and the very obviously earthbound location. Isaac Bauman’s photography captures the spirit of the media it's riffing on - not just Star Trek and 2001: A Space Odyssey, but lower budget cult classics like Silent Running.
